Contents
Presentation of projects by their promoters, from artistic and other sectors, based on the premise that the visual arts comprise a powerful tool for cultural and social development.

and other disciplines.

The session includes five project presentations and two debate tables. With the participation of Ramon Parramon, Jordi Canudas / Carme Carbonell, Laia Solé / Glòria Safont-Tria, Javier Rodrigo and Marta Ricart.

Programme

10 am to 10,15 am Introduction by Rosa Serra, Coordinator of Àrea de Coneixement i Noves Tecnologies de la Diputació de Barcelona

10,15am  to 11am Ramon Parramon, director d'ACVic Centre d'Arts Contemporànies

Art, educació i Territori.
How to go beyond habitual approaches such as education through art? Or how to find new audiences for art through a combination of the three elements of art, education and territory?. This combination aims to generate mechanisms by which to create environments for  knowledge transfer, the exchange of experiences, the encouragement of interdisciplinary relationships, and new social dynamics, all achieved by connecting artistic practice with a local context. The experiences presented in this session formulate revisions and recombination of three interconnected elements: art, education and work-related networks, deployed in a given environment.

11 am to 12 pm Jordi Canudas, artist, and Carme Carbonell, teacher of Escola La Sínia de Vic

Al portal de casa_i els constructors_Barri del Remei de Vic (Vic, 2011) sorgeix de la iniciativa d'endegar projectes en col·laboració entre diferents institucions a partir de la idea de creuar art, educació i territori. Entrellaça l'experiència i vivència en el barri (territori), la implicació de professors i alumnes d'una escola de primària i de l'escola d'art (pedagogia), amb elements de projecció, representació, articulació de continguts, mirada crítica i analítica de l'entorn (art).

12 pm to 12,30 pm Break

12,30 pm 1,30 pm Laia Solé i Glòria Safont-Tria, artists

Bcn xuta (Barcelona, 2007-2008) is the result of research included in he exhibition "Post-it city. Ciutats Ocasionals" (CCCB, Barcelona, curated by Martí Peran). The project was conducted jointly by both artists and focused on the informal sporting uses of public space in the city.

A video documenting how members of three communities, Pakistani, Ecuadorian and skateboarder, modify space and the  rules of the game itself in order to practice their sport in Barcelona: cricket, ecuavòlei, and skateboarding respectively. The search for new areas
(unsused land, shopping mall parking lots, parks, etc ...), as well as their modification for sport  are common tactics in all three
communities. FUrther, the artists used some of these tactics in a street action for a second video, in which a team of people played kick ball in the centre of Barcelona, making visible the limits of public space and the ability of the game to encourage interaction.

1,30 pm  to 2 pm Debate table moderated by Ramon Parramon

4 pm to 4,45 pm Javier Rodrigo, artist

Transductors. Collective pedagogies and space politics is a cultural project aiming to research and enable initiatives which join artistic
practice, political intervention and education in a flexible way.

Collective pedagogies refers to projects moving between education, art and activism, promoting  the transformation of specific social problems through sustainable development, citizen participation and visual culture from multidisciplinary work groups.

Spatial politics refers to alternative practices proposing a more comprehensive, diverse and participatory space through the collaboration of urban planning and architecture with other fields of knowledge (such as art, education, sociology, ethnography, ecology and community work).

4,45 pm to 5,30 pm Marta Ricart

Escòpics. Visual creative processes to stimulate social imagination is an art project to stimulate community based on the creation of two groups of digital reporters in the towns of Solsona and Calaf in charge
of reinventing their environment.

Grup de Reporters i Reporteres de la Gent Gran de Solsona is part of an outreach educational initiative by Serveis Socials de l'Ajuntament de Solsona, started in 2004. Grup de Reporters i Reporteres Digitals de Calaf is part of a community action promoted by  "Barri Amunt", a programme coordinated by Associació l'Arada framed in the “Pla de Barris” ( district planning) of the town of Calaf.

The proposal started as a digital photography workshop, which in addition to teaching the main techniques of digital photography, introduced new ways of looking at reality  through photography. The optics of a camera, taken as a central axis of different ways of looking
at the world around us, has made possible the teaching of the concept of  the point of view from which we situate ourselves to see and understand reality, and has allowed a framework of reflection to be set up regarding the place where each participant is situated within the limits of their environment.

5,30 pm to 6 pm Debate table moderated by Ramon Parramon
