“Resisto” (“I resist”) is the core concept of PSPF 14 – a simple word, with a strong impact based on the psycho-social concept of “resilience”. Resilience is the human ability to face the adversities of life, to go beyond and eventually overcome them, becoming stronger than before and transformed for the best. Resilient people are not super heroes, but just individuals who found inside their own selves, in human relationships, and in life contexts, those elements and the strength to keep on projecting their future in spite of all the destabilizing events, hard moments in life, even severe shocks. From a psychosocial perspective, the concept of resilience is also refer to human groups and communities to indicate a condition of amplified cohesion of the members, also strengthening the vital resources of the participants.
To cultivate humanness means to be connected to other human beings and to recognize them. This theme is connected with the work already carried out during the previous occasions of the PSPF: Social Photography
as a means of exposure and reflection, of redemption of individual and collective identities, of giving voice to “outsiders” and therefore of social inclusion; Therapeutic Photography
as a means of reactivation of the perception and of the inner personal stimulus, especially where communicative difficulties arise, which starts a process of self-awareness and self-exploration.
