Missioners.cat is a multimedia website that allows people to meet some of the Catalan misionaries in the world. The project contains an interactive map, infographics, miniclips and pedagogical cards about who these misionaries are, what they do, which is their way of seeing life, what experiences they have in the field of interreligious or intercultural dialogue, or what they think about current news.
The proyecte outbroke in 2014 with the General Directorate of Religious Appointees of the Catalonia’s Government contribution and currently has the collaboration of the Puig-Porret Foundation.
The purpose of the map is, on one hand, offering data and a census of missionary Catalans in the world and, on the other hand, being a showcase of vital witnesses of these people.
The main objective is to collect and make available to everyone a documentary collection of people who are outside their country of origin, Catalonia, and who are out for any reason that concerns their religious origin. The goal is doing it in a journalistic and multimedia format, not only with data.
In this sense, the project aims to create a documentary collection of images, conversations, interviews and biographies of these missionaries. Another principle is developing an interactive and multimedia map with information related to the missionary and transcription of his social, political and religious thought. This project collects the witness alive and in first person of these religious people. Preferably, of those who have a more advanced age and creating teaching materials for the work of all those values and areas that we can link to the testimony of these people such as peace, interreligious dialogue, solidarity, generosity, social justice, social cohesion, interculturality and difference, inequality, Human Rights, Christianity or the search for the meaning of life.
