At the beginning…

Project genesis 


The aim was to give the young the means to understand Europe as it is today so as to « live it » better together. The aim was to share an urge, the urge to live in a better world, a brighter and more desirable one.

The foundations  of a society that fights back extremism, violence and hatred and that remains to be built. Finding out what makes these moments of violence in Europe so particular, yesterday and today, represents the paths that are exploited here to trigger within the readers the conditions of complex radical thoughts fuelled by active and civic awareness.

Here  are the aims of the group of creators who have built this project.




The production


Under the guidance of Aix-Marseille university it is a collective of creators from France, Tunisia and Italy who are committed to making Made of Lead and Blood, episode one of the History Board Project.

History Boards…. 


History Board is a transmed creative project whose aim is to shed a new light on radicalism in Europe and to make the young reflect about yesterday and today’s societies and also about intolerance  whatever shape it may take on. Our intention is to figure out, by resorting to fiction how young people  living in today’s world would interpret and mobilize their culture, their values, networks and technologies in order to promote a pacified vision of the world .

This project has the approval of Europe Creative Programme which supports the audio-visual, cultural and creative sectors in Europe. The  various ways of supporting the project have encouraged its actors to work throughout Europe, to reach out to new audiences and to develop the required skills in the field of digital technology. It revisits a historical event which illustrates one of the forms of violence in our contemporary world.
