360 Refugees - the challenges of sheltering

The project “360 Refugees - the challenges of sheltering” - is a transdisciplinary exploratory project that aims to develop and test an immersive experience on the challenges of local communities in welcoming refugees.

The story will be created by capturing 360-degree videos, making a contemporary connection about the history of reception in Portugal, with the receipt of refugee families from war regions, who are already installed in the country, bringing light to the challenges and adversities of this change.

The objective is to create a reflection on the theme, which is so sensitive in the community, since it is necessary to create a more empathetic and solidarity culture for those who need help to start over.

For this, a 360-degree documentary will be created to promote immersion in the subject, an exhibition and an interactive website that can collaborate for the dissemination of information and help to create a culture of empathy and welcome in young Portuguese people.
