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.
The Laboratori Porositats is presented as a work-sharing space, with the objective of establishing a viable project which connects art and education to the local context in which the project will be developed. In the towns of Granollers, Prat de Llobregat and Terrassa, where the laboratory took place, specific working groups were set up, groups which, between February and July of 2016, organised various sessions in order to set out a project specific to each town. These working groups were set up with the participation of experts in different municipal fields, artists, teachers, heads of cultural departments, heads of educational departments, or agents from outside these departments.
Laboratori Porositats has been divided into two phases. The first (February – July 2016) was a discussion phase, directed towards setting out the baselines for the project to be completed during the second phase (September 2016 – June 2017). Most of the working sessions which took place in each town represented an attempt to combine research, training, and debate among all those who attended, and were conducted by Anna Crosas (Diputació de Barcelona), Ramon Parramon – Maite Palomo (ACVic), and experts from each participating municipality; Lluc Mayol – Cristina Castells (El Prat de Llobregat), Susana Medina (Ajuntament de Terrassa), and Glòria Fusté (Museu de Granollers). The intention of these sessions was to define, through dialogue, an experimental way of working, directed towards setting out a cooperative project. In these sessions, participants decided what they would do, how and when to complete the work, and with whom; all with the intention that group members should feel involved in the construction of their projects.
The second phase has seen the start of these defined projects; Modulacions – La Paraula in El Prat de Llobregat, La Calaixera in Granollers and TERRA-OASI in Terrassa. All of these projects were begun in September and October of 2016, with different considerations and resources taken into account according to the reality of each location, and will be concluded between May and June of 2017. As an element common to each project, all projects will be taken as pilot experiences, with a view to reproducing and reconsidering them in future editions.
