Postcards from the Field: Meeting Migrant Youth and Participatory Film Workshops

GlobalGRACE member Pável Valenzuela Arámburo (Work Package 5: Mexico) reports on some of the Museo Migrante's recent activities.


Above are photos of Museo Migrante in a field day laborer where near Hermosillo where we spoke about gender equality and good migration, as well as the experiences of fellow migrant partners.


The main objectives of the meeting were to reflect on the identity changes that girls, boys and young people experience in migratory contexts, and the possibilities of building new forms of relationship and participation in our communities. We also wanted to encourage the creation of a transnational network of young migrants in the Mesoamerican region who seek to strengthen their empowerment, their rights, and an articulated work that promotes interculturality.


The realization of these days is based on the need to disseminate, reclaim the rights of day laborers, and propose answers to the problems faced by thousands of agricultural workers in Sonora. The main objective is to open spaces for dialogue between day laborers and stakeholders to develop proposals that provide alternative solutions to the different problems and contribute to the visibility of this social group.

Participatory film workshop and presentation of documentaries

Participatory cinema workshops (pictured below) were given with the perspective on migration and gender. One was with indigenous women from several communities of the Highlands of Chiapas, and another had an emphasis on masculinities of indigenous youth from various communities of the Highlands of Chiapas.
