PROJECT MAPS

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 project is ongoing, and free of charge. To request more information or to book activities phone 93 885 37 04 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
