'Ljubljana is a ghetto?' is a project that grew out of another cultural project we were doing in 2006. We thought it was really interesting that we were hearing certain statements from the young people we were interviewing in the city meets quite often. It was things like 'welcome to the Jarše ghetto' or... 'look around, we are living in a ghetto' etc.
We could think that it might be a kind of 'fashion' between youth. But then again not. Ghetto implies fear, violence, isolation, exclusion. Unpleasant feelings that nobody wishes to experience.
The questions we wished to clear out with this project were: Firstly what is a ghetto? Do we have ghettos in Ljubljana or... Slovenia? Where? And... would that really be a ghetto? What makes us feel unsafe in certain areas? And finally... what can we do to change that? Also how can we promote the changes (positive ones of course)?
The project was pursued by a team of animators using interesting and attractive methods for working on the topic.
Starting with opening a blog as a place to discuss it as openly as possible. Blog as a response to one of the modern ways of isolation - staying home behind the computers. And we also believe that this is the way to reach to wh at people really think. Blog was also serving as a journal for our street animation and as a place to publish all the news, events etc. In the streetwork we focused to large appartement buildings areas and other socially less stimulative city areas. Our aim was to get to young people there and invite them to cooperate and co-create the project and as well the development of it's topic. We were trying to involve them by using attractive media such as video cameras, photo cameras, internet etc. Then we organized video editing, digital photo editing and building an internet site workshops. The final product of the project is a documentary film, an interactive photo exchibition and a blog equiped with the information on the project, some short videos and photos (www.ljubljanajegeto.blogspot.com).
