The word diom comes from djom in Wolof, one of the languages of Senegal and the Gambia. It means inner strength and determination to choose the path of good.

As part of the ‘Umbral’ display project, various community centres are offering free screenings of a documentary by the producer Quepo. Entitled Diop, the film documents the first two years of the Diomcoop cooperative.

Diomcoop is a cooperative working in the sphere of sales, commerce and services. It was set up to cover the social inclusion, labour and relational needs of non-authorised street vendors in the city.

A group of street vendors took the step of setting up a street sales business with the backing of the City Council. The cooperative tries to offer dignified jobs and legal documents for people in irregular situations.

 

Schedule


En el marc del projecte expositiu Umbral, tindrà lloc en diversos centres cívics de Barcelona un cicle de projeccions del curt documental "DIOM", un audiovisual de la productora Quepo resultat de casi dos anys de seguimient a la cooperativa Diomcoop.

Sinopsi: Diom és una paraula wòlof que dóna nom a l'enteresa, al coratge i la força interior. És el diom amb el que centenars de persones s'aixequen cada matí i defensen la seva dignitat en un context legal migratori que els exclou de la societat on viuen. A Barcelona, un grup de manteres i manters, s'aventura a posar en marxa un negoci de venda ambulant impulsat per l'Ajuntament. La cooperativa intentarà oferir treball digne i documents legals a persones en situació irregular en la ciutat.
