Présentation du projet en anglais :

Singing History for Democracy is a project for students from Italy, France, Poland and Spain. The objective of the project  is to raise teenagers’ awareness of the important role that people’s participation plays in the preservation of democracy. It was devised as a creative way of studying history through musicals. Taking contemporary history as a content framework and musicals as an artistic way of expression of people’s voice, students are meant to work on musical songs showing how people have had to struggle for democracy, freedom and human rights throughout history in different ways and under diverse circumstances. Getting to understand the historical background, the lyrics of the songs will turn meaningful and inspiring for the students’ own creations and their collaborative contribution to keep democracy alive. The international teams worked on a process of research, information sharing, creation of digital and interactive illustrations, edition and publication of the eBook.
