Case Study Exhibition on "The Children of Immigration." The CDCC's Project 7: "The Education and Cultural Development of Migrants."
An action exhibition was held from January 18 to April 23, 1984 to allow young immigrants to express what they experienced, felt, desired, and had to offer in the context of the French society. The exhibition sought to show, without neglecting the problems raised by these new generations, how, beyond all tensions, the young people were taking their place in French society; its objectives were cultural, social, and political. The stage area was occupied in turn by mostly amateur or semi-professional theatre, music, and dance groups, and discussions. The exhibition's static part made reference to the past, present, and future. There were also 13 live broadcasts by local radios run by young immigrants; films; discussions; meetings; round tables; and a series of meetings with young poets, story-tellers, and writers. Attendance averaged 4,800 persons a day. Visitors were surveyed to evaluate the exhibition's impact. Of the 804 questionnaires distributed, 780 were analyzed. Findings indicated that the exhibition brought the young immigrants' work before a wide public; a significant number of intellectuals and technicians attended the exhibition; the project should decentralize and continue at the regional level; and the exhibition also served as a forum, well attended by young people themselves.
