A project of creation and research , focusing on deploying collective processes by establishing a relationship between the arts and public space. It interacts with space starting with observation to help promote various practices which originate in this line of investigation. The premises for putting together this project are considered from the
viewpoint of mutual support, with an educational,  horizontal relationship, promoting independence in learning through a process of support for the capabilities and activities of each participant. The main framework lies in the relationship and dialogue established between all project participants and Vic. Founded upon the tradition of  the night-time walk around the city and its surroundings, the project draws on this experience to produce a open public performance where participants may take part in the methodology employed in the research. Adapting to the idiosyncrasies of place, incorporating the expertise of its inhabitants, to express the potential of street arts to revitalise,
transform and represent a particular territory, are the objectives of this project.

To document the action, we propose, to anyone who wishes to do so, a field collection of objects, photos, sketches, writings, sounds and videos during the walk. The material gathered will be exchanged with New York, sent in a package by mail. This gesture will bear witness to our simultaneous action, expressing the intention to promote new relationships between cultural and educational communities.

Presentation CAMINANTS at 7 pm in ACVic

A proposal by Deriva Mussol, with the collaboration of Osonament, the support of Obertament, and the participation of ACVic and UVIC-UCC.

During the winter and spring of 2016, Deriva Mussol organised a group of people to go for a walk every Tuesday morning from 10 am to 12pm.

Their intention with this new proposal was to create a group of walkers comprising sufferers, or former sufferers, of mental illness, and people who have rarely, or have never, met sufferers or former sufferers of mental illness, and so, through walking and talking, help to dispel the stigma surrounding such illnesses.

The aesthetic dimension of walking, and the climate of confidence which emerged while sharing hours of walks and conversations, made it easier to talk about, demonstrate, and recapture their more poetic passions, those artistic expressions which, more intimately or more publicly, each of us realised in their daily lives. Having already Immersed ourselves in the process, they invited Adicciones Porquesí and Xef Vila to join their walks, and to produce, respectively, a publication and a documentary in which to collect together the whole story, and in which each participant might present whichever parts of their work they felt more comfortable in making public.

During the months of Walkers activities Deriva Mussol discovered the skills and talents of the various members of the group, and enjoyed the collaborations between us when creating their pieces. This is what they wish to highlight and convey with this publication and this documentary, which will be presented on November 25th at 7 pm at  ACVic, C. Sant Francesc, 1 Vic.

The proposal received funding and technical support from Obertament, Aliança Catalana de Lluita contra l’Estigma en Salut Mental, and was carried out with the cooperation and involvement of Deriva Mussol and Osonament (FCMPPO). ACVic Centre d’Arts Contemporànies and Universitat de Vic UVic-UCC also collaborated during the different stages.

Sergi Oliva Ostos, Oscar Marcelo Fernandez, Ramon Ribé Donada, Marcel Pi Saguer, MontPuntí, Marc Barnils Riera, Iris Clos Guitart, Victor P, Ramon Villegas Guix, Albert Baquer Gómez, Berta Carreras, Xènia Isern, Irene Marcos, Jordi Lafon and Eva Marichalar-Freixa

Adicciones Porquesí, Teresa Mulet, Agustín Villanueva,  Cristina Artigas, Jordi Vilarrodà, Mar Recarens, Montsita Rierola, Neus Vila, Alba Fontserè,  Santi Atienza, Sascha Chaves, Joan Petit, Mònica, Mica and Sílvia

Deriva Mussol are Jordi Lafon and Eva Marichalar-Freixa, in collaboration with all those who participated in the projects. From their respective careers in visual and performance arts and education arises an interest in walking and the derive as ways to explore possibilities for creativity and learning in contemporary contexts. They like to generate activities and share open, permeable, and dynamic spaces.

Deriva Mussol is part of Projecte Viver of ACVic Centre d’Arts Contemporànies de Vic.
