PARTNERS / Sopra i Ponti Association

The association was founded in Bologna in 1995 by a group of Moroccan migrant workers and local citizens, in order to perform cultural activities aimed to overcome prejudice and reduce communication difficulties between migrants and natives. Its associates are now mostly Moroccan migrant workers and its activities are mostly committed to: small-scale cooperation projects supporting rural communities in Morocco (since 2008, three rural development projects in southern Morocco have been implemented with grants from Emilia-Romagna Region); cultural activities in Bologna based on the lives of migrant workers (since 2009, participated in a 2-year theatre workshops programme run by Teatro dell'Argine and implemented a 1-year workshop of comic storytelling which resulted in publication of a comic book).
