Local projects which bring together art and pedagogy in the local context.
During 2016, ACVic has managed and coordinated the Laboratori POROSITATS, supported by the Programa d’Arts Visuals de la Diputació de Barcelona and developed in collaboration with the Ajuntament de Terrassa, the Ajuntament de Granollers and the Ajuntament del Prat de Llobregat.
PROFILES. APPROACHING THE FACT OF EMIGRATION
In this year's “Profiles, coming closer to the fact of emigration” project, 132 third year pupils from secondary schools in Taradell and Tona, and 23 people, from 18 different countries (Uruguay, Honduras, Morocco, Columbia, Portugal, the UK, the Ukraine, Russia, Thailand, Peru, Ecuador, Spain [Múrcia], the Dominican Republic, Bulgaria, India and Argentina), presently living in the county of Osona, mostly in Tona and Taradell, have participated.
The project, which began in January and ended in May 2016, consisted of work in a variety of formats, both inside and outside the classroom.
Bet Pol, Community Outreach Officer from the La Plana Commonwealth, brought debates and dynamics regarding the social, demographic and economic data and causes of the fact of emigration to the classroom.
The pupils themselves accomplished the most practical part of the project, making their own personal approach to emigration through interview-conversations with people who had emigrated, and who told them about their experiences.
These were recorded and edited by the pupils themselves, with professional assistance, for later screening in the classroom. Also, the pupils from the Tona Secondary School complemented this work with a sculptural exhibition mounted in their own school.
To complete the project, the organisation ImpactaT arranged some classroom workshops based upon the tools offered by the “theatre of the oppressed” in order to study the stereotypes, the prejudices and the rumours around immigration.
The professionals who coordinated and executed this project were highly satisfied with their experience, and made special recognition of the pupils' effort and motivation, and of the enthusiasm of the teaching staff involved, giving enormous thanks to those who were willing to share a part of their lives with the community as a whole.
This is an educational project which concentrates upon multiculturalism and learning about cultural diversity, promoted by the La Plana Commonwealth's Coexistence Plan, and supported by the Diputació de Barcelona and the Generalitat de Catalunya. Technical and audiovisual support was by the Centre d’Arts Contemporànies ACVic, through the professional work of Lorda Crusellas.
All interviews were shown around World Cultural Diversity Day, during the week from 16th till 21st May, at the Tona Public Library, and during the week from 21st till 28th May at the Taradell Public Library.
For the first time, both public libraries carry in their archives DVDs from all editions of the project which are available for lending through the usual lending service.
Each interview is available on the La Plana Commonwealth's YouTube channel, as well as a compilation of all interviews together, lasting 10 minutes in total.

Part of the project ART I ESCOLA 05
4th year pupils from Les Margues de Calldetenes Secondary School
Bringing together the programmes Art i escola i Digues la teva, this year's proposal consists of shooting short films based upon Edward Hopper's artistic works.
Reflections on the subject of the void, based on a consideration of Hopper's works, form the inspiration for the construction of these narratives. Loneliness, isolation, death, anger are among the themes dealt with from a teenager's point of view, fleshed out in the plotlines of the completed films.
ACVic Centre d’Arts Contemporànies, during the 2014-2015 school year, worked in collaboration with PROFILES, an educational project by Mancomunitat La Plana.
Focusing on intercultural understanding and cultural diversity promoted through the Coexistence Plan (Pla de convivencia) of the Mancomunitat La Plana (La Plana Commonwealth), with the support of the Diputació de Barcelona and the Generalitat de Catalunya.

FOTOGRAFIA EN CURS. ABAO A QU
FOTOGRAFIA EN CURS
Workshop done by Tanit Plana and Abao a qu
Pupils of the Andersen School
30.04.2013 - 07.05.2013
ACVic Centre d’arts Contemporànies collaborated on the Fotografia en curs, a proposal from the collective A bao a qu, bringing together the Andersen school [http://www.escolaandersen.com] in Vic and artist Tanit Plana. The Andersen project consisted of a workshop with the students of the school.
A Bao A Qu [http://www.abaoaqu.cat] is a nonprofit cultural association dedicated to conceiving and developing projects which bring together education and artistic creation. Founded in 2004, since its beginning it has introduced creation in schools and colleges by professionals in the field of art and culture.
During this school year A Bao A Qu conducted Fotografia en curso [http://www.fotografiaencurs.org], a programme of workshops in schools:
Fotografia en curs is an ongoing programme of education and the dissemination of photographic creation which began in 2012.
The project saw four major areas of development: Workshops in schools through training teachers, with the occasional participation of photographers; activities and workshops in museums, arts centres, archives and cultural facilities; training for teachers; and Web.
This project was related with Art i Escola 02 [http://artiescola.cat], a project in which the Andersen school participated.
The participants, 103 pupils of the 5th and 6th year primary school school, devised a project for Art i Escola, a discussion about TIME in relation to the school's history, based upon photographic work.
As part of Educational Interferences, in a search for new audiences and new ways to socialise contemporary art, comes MAPS. A cultural and leisure activity presented and offered free of charge to institutions of Assistance and Social Services working with people with learning difficulties, the disabled, and people at risk of social exclusion, as well as to institutions dealing with cultural diversity issues. MAPS joins contemporary art and audio visual education, providing production environments which are open to experimentation. Understanding artistic practices as practices affecting, interacting and transforming social space.
The proposal consists in complementing, by means of a meaningful and enjoyable group experience, audiovisual training with the world of cartography. Learning and exploring our surroundings, to learn how to find our way in the countryside, to enhance the relationship and communication between participants, are among the objectives pursued within this project, designed by Toni Cirera.
The specialists at ACVic's educational service , in collaboration with the professional staff of the participating institutions, will adapt the educational proposal to the needs and profiles of individual participants. Starting with an initial structure lasting 9 hours, divided into 3 sessions.
The following centres have participated in activities:

The maps and the photographs of the working process at Centre Riudeperes are on exhibition at ACVic Centre d’Arts Contemporànies
18th, 19th and 20th October 2011
On the first day, at the Centre Riudeperes, we introduced ourselves and the activity. The participants made their first contact with the map, discovering the streets on the route to be walked the next day. We showed how to use the cameras and we took some pictures to practice.
On the second day, the participants moved to ACVIC from which point we started the tour of the historic centre of Vic. Following the map, they
discovered the seven locations where, taking turns, each participant took a photo of the group. On the third day, at the Centre Riudeperes, we recalled the previous day's route, and we pasted a copy of the photos on each of the locations on the map.
*The Centre Riudeperes provides both a service and a residential establishment which forms part of the Institut Català d'Assistència i
Serveis Socials (ICASS) from the Departament d'Acció Social i Ciutadania de la Generalitat de Catalunya, managed and administered by Associació
de Sant Tomàs - PARMO.
Centre Riudeperes operates two services: residential and day care, both for people with mental handicaps requiring extensive support, and
for people who may present additional health and / or mental health problems.

[PI_03] ON THE DOORSTEP_ and the builders_
On The Doorstep_ and The Builders (Al Portal de Casa_ Els Construcotrs_) is a project directed by Jordi Canudas for cross-collaboration among students of Escola La Sínia at the Remei district of the city of Vic, students of Escola d’Art i Superior de Disseny de Vic and ACVic Centre d’Arts Contemporànies, and with support from Pla de Barris i Participació Ciutadana de l’Ajuntament de Vic and Generalitat de Catalunya. Consell Nacional de la Cultura i de les Arts.
ON THE DOORSTEP_and the builders is a two-pronged project which, starting with contemporary artistic practices, proposes a dialogue with the current social reality at Barri del Remei in Vic. A site-specific project, working in the context of the neighbourhood, once an important part of the transformation plan promoted by Pla de Barris has been completed. Through this project two distant moments of neighbourhood life, the sixties and the present day, are connected. A relationship formed through the personal experience of Jordi Canudas, as someone who has lived his childhood and adolescence in the neighbourhood, and who in recent years has been attentive to changes with regard to both the physical and social contexts. The project goes from particular to general: his family experience in relation to the house where he lived for years, to the knowledge and exchange with the family or people who live in the house now. From personal experience of the child he was, to the knowledge and the collective construction with the children who now live, play and attend school there. From the house and its inhabitants to the neighbourhood and its neighbours.
This project arises from an initiative to start collaborative projects among different institutions based on the idea of crossing art-education and TERRITORY*. ACVIC takes an active interest in its programming in the relationship between arts projects and schools. The project weaves Jordi Canudas's experience in the district (territory), the involvement of teachers and students from elementary school and art school (education) with elements of planning, representation and articulation of contents (art).
This is a project in progress, started in February 2011 and expected to be completed in November 2011. Between February and June, activities will be carried out with students and teachers of the Escola la Sínia, and students of the Escola d’Art i Superior de Disseny de Vic. In mid-June the project will be presented at ACVic Centre d'Arts Contemporànies.
Jordi Canudas is a Visual artist and professor of Visual Arts at the Departament d’Arts Visuals de l’Escola Massana Centre d’Art i Disseny-UAB
CORRESPONDENCE is an art project consisting of a postal communication between UVic students and students from different schools. The central theme is the journey: the experience of space in time. The project will start with the correspondences sended by the students of the subject Didàctica Artística I of the Educational Faculty of the Universitat de Vic , transferred to and developed by the pupils of diferent schools.
The aim of CORRESPONDENCES is to set in motion a sequence of experiences regarding the environment and its visual representation, to open a channel of communication between students of different educational institutions participating in the project, and to promote ways of looking at, interpreting and representing our immediate environment.
The project, led by Montsita Rierola and Laia Solé, originates with Didàctica Artística I studies at Facultat d’Educació de la UVic, with the collaboration of ACVic and the participation of the schools:
- Escola Joan XXIII, Els Hostalets de Balenyà
- Escola Les Pinediques, Taradell
- Col·legi Sant Miquel dels Sants, Vic
- Escola Vic Centre, Vic
- La Farinera Centre d’Arts Visuals, Vic
The project runs from February to May. The results is exhibited at ACVic from 18.05.2011 to 17.07.2011 .

[PI-01] Criss-Crossing by Jordi Lafon
First activities of the programme Pedagogical Intersections
A first project of the programme, a collaboration with UVic, has started as a part of the Artistic Didactic I class and with the participation of lecturers Montsita Rierola and Laia Solé. Two artistic projects have been proposed: Criss-crossing by Jordi Lafon,during October and November of 2010 and a second project, Correspondences, during the course 2010/2011. Both activities work through the concept of itinerary and experience of the immediate environment according to two curriculum subjects in primary school; Discovering the environment, and Communication and languages. ACVic supports this proposal, and a part of the collaboration consists of carrying out the activity on the premises of Acvic centre. The other part of the collaboration consists of deploying complementary mechanisms to generate new forms of connection among students, artistic practice and the reality of our environment.
