Ciudad de los Niños (Bolivia-Italy): Documentary Screening and Discussion (April 17)

Posted in: CHSS News, Homepage News and Events, Inserra

The documentary La Ciudad de los Niños about an Italian foster home and school created in Bolivia in the 1960s provides a fruitful platform to address issues of foster care, access to education for challenged youth, and migration flows prompted by transnational initiatives of support.

Join us on Monday April 17 in Presentation Hall 1040 (School of Communication and Media) for the documentary screening (5:30-6:50pm) followed by a panel (7:00-8:30pm) including guests coming from Bolivia and Italy, as well as local speakers, to engage in a comparative discussion about economic and socio-cultural interventions and collaborations.

Organized and sponsored by the Inserra Endowed Chair in collaboration with the Italian Program (Dept. of World Languages and Cultures), the Dept. of Social Work and Child Advocacy, and the Red Hawk Fellows at Montclair State University. In partnership with Fondazione Patronato San Vincenzo, Bergamo (Italy) and St. Benedict’s Preparatory School, Newark, NJ.
