Young Messengers of European Memory (YoMem)
YoMem is an Erasmus project that aims to explore how memory can be used as a tool, to enhance awareness of who we are as individuals and as a collective community. The purpose of this project is to create educational paths and tools for young Europeans, based on autobiographical methodologies and digital storytelling.
Throughout this project, young people will discover stories and collate individual memories of European history, whilst learning about other traditions and cultures that represent European multiplicity. The aim of this project will be to actively increase young people’s awareness of the values of democracy, coexistence, and social justice by using memory as a powerful tool to unite us in shared experiences.
For this project, Real Time will be working with the Museum of English Rural Life to increase youth participation in museums by exploring the memories and histories around them.
