timbuktu social goal
“Timbuktu” addresses in a unique and enticing manner the issue of social exclusion, an increasingly pressing problem of the entire Croatian society. While the care for abandoned animals is a very attractive issue for the media, as well as an issue regarding civil awareness, the issue of persons with an invisible social status is usually met in public with tacit accusation, and it rarely receives adequate artistic interpretation. This project considers the issues mentioned, by attempting to work on their visibility, avoiding any type of ideological stance. It directly advocates a change of the disinterested public perception, questions prejudice and strengthens tolerance. We expect to stimulate youth to actively reflect on socially responsible behavior. Through communication with and active inclusion of homeless persons in realizing this project, their reintegration into the society is encouraged as well. There will also be a promotion of basic knowledge about the responsible and humane treatment of animals.
