Making your voice heard for certain social categories is a real challenge. A challenge that the two groups of the Festival Bottom Up! WALL coming! and Hear me have decided to take up by putting themselves to work for the realization of social inclusion projects aimed at two well-defined targets: the first aims to build a theater open to all within the juvenile prison Ferrante Aporti, Lingotto, to be designed and managed with the direct involvement of children; the second instead wants to create a sound installation in the garden Piredda that promotes the inclusion of psychiatric users.

WALL Coming! A new theater in the city.

The Wall Coming! project has as its objective the realization of a theater inside the juvenile prison of Lingotto Ferrante Aporti. The theater will be a multifunctional space open to all to design, conceive and manage directly with the children. Not a simple theater, then: Wall Coming! will give life to a place of exchange of skills, self-determination and assumption of responsibility, a place ready to welcome the city with its cultural and theatrical exhibitions.
WALL Coming! is an experimental path of rediscovery of their skills that actively involves young people to transform the spaces of the prison in a concrete way. It has a goal of 17.000 euros and 3 steps to face: to design an acoustic system and a blackout system to adapt the space to future events; to design modular platforms and seats to be used with a different arrangement depending on the occasion of use; to create a sign that is visible from the outside and a path that welcomes visitors and guides them to the theater.

Hear me

The idea of Hear Me was born to promote the social inclusion of psychiatric users living in residential facilities overlooking the Piredda garden in Borgo San Paolo. Here will be placed an artistic sound installation that through loudspeakers will broadcast the soundtrack recorded by patients, health workers and citizens. The goal? To promote social inclusion and experiment the potential of creative disciplines for psychiatric rehabilitation. The goal of the project is 15,000 euros and many are the rewards for the donors: the illustrations by the designer Giulia La Porta, the handmade sartorial creations of Sartoria Orlando furioso, guided tours among the plants at the Viridarium Lab Garden in Pino Torinese and a gardening course to learn how to best care for your balcony or garden.
