oriol arnedo - griot



Project by Oriol Arnedo

Made of words, memories and experiences, Griot is an approach to the migration from West Africa to Barcelona. The project explores the experiences of immigrants developing participatory methodologies, and using design as a tool for social transformation.

The final result is a limited edition of printed books that unifies the content as a documentary file. Complemented with a series of handmade posters and an online platform to provide free access to materials.

Griot was awarded a silver Laus in 2016 by ADG-FAD in the category of “Best final degree project”. He was also selected as one of the “New Talents’ Projects” of DMY International Design Festival 2016.
