This project consists of identifying the people who participated in the 2007 project and recontacting the people interviewed in 2007 – about the situation today, the relationship of descendants to the country of origin of parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. ’What is left of our roots?’ Is the language still spoken? Are the habits the same? What are the reasons for this? Interviews with descendants (filmed, written) and interviews with people who are part of the new migratory wave (continuation of the exercise started in 2007) will take place. A photographic exhibition (in the Nei Liicht and Dominique Lang art centres), creation of a new website (which uses the main elements of the old one, and which will therefore be reactivated) with interviews, photos and testimonies, Conferences, debates and meetings are also planned. This concept is intended to be used in the context of each European Capital of Culture and the project spread throughout the mining basin.
