Photography for the Santa Chiara Center


Superfotocolla uses photography as an interaction tool to stimulate children’s creativity. Photography and related practices are considered as elements to create reflection and active knowledge among children about the interaction between the photograph and subjects.
One by one all the children will take pictures. After that, these pictures will be given back to them in little pieces and printed on A4 paper. By resizing the various pieces and gluing them together, the participants will produce at the end of the workshop large posters with their portraits that will be affixed to the walls of the Santa Chiara’s portico.
The lab is directed by the photographer Roberto Boccaccino of Minimum.


Not far from the historic market of Ballarò in the Albergheria district, the Santa Chiara center, from the 80s, hosts day and night citizens and migrants providing them shelter, meals, medical care, legal advice, job orientation, childcare and more. The Salesian oratorio has various collective spaces used for various purposes trying to address the issues related to poverty in the neighborhood, drug use, unemployment and school dropout.
In the Santa Chiara center, people of different cultures, ages and religions find welcoming, listening, services and meeting places.


In the context of the Urban Creativity Day and in partnership with CICIRI – festival of graphic illustration and independent publishing house, Street Art Factory asked to the artist The Saint to realize three limited editions of posters.
Thanks to the purchase of the first 50 works, the workshop Superfotocolla will be activated. For each print purchased 4 euro will be used to fund the project.
