Colours of a Journey (CoJ) is a digital archive of memories of migration. It's creation was inspired by an exhibition organised by the Italian cultural association ARC and displayed during the annual Sabir Festival of Cultures, 2016, taking place in Palermo. The platform hosts paintings by newcomer children around Europe, envisioning their past, present and future and helps reception facilities to organize and host workshops and exhibitions with the materials gathered. As art is a medium that bridges linguistic and cultural barriers and images are often more effective than words to communicate complex experiences and emotions, CoJ is designed to collect and exhibit paintings and illustrations as well as to create a space where questions like "Why did these people leave their homes? What does their life look like now? What kind of a future do they envision for themselves?" are answered by the newcomers themselves.
