The beginning of the project!
I was so excited when I received the mail confirming that I were selected to be part of the community art project Recreart! Next day I meet Anka and Janet (artist from Polonia) with Silvia (from the UB) in a friendly way, and they explained to me their ideas and motivation for the project.
I spend the first week meeting people from Germanetes, knowing the space and participating in the general assamblea, where Anka and Janek introduced the project, the activities and ideas they have been thinking about. They did it with an original presentation presented in a big cardboard!
So, after a few meetings with the people from the university, the ones from Germanetes and our artists from Polonia, I am now working on the first activity to do on Thursday 23th, called “combat el drac!”, which is related with the day of Sant Jordi, and its history.
Our little “art” team met last saturday 18th to talked about the organization of the workshop and to distribute all the task. We accorded how to do the activity, which consist on preparing seeds bombs that will be throw in the 5000 space, from a big door, without getting into the space. The activity is directed to children, so we created a poster and spreaded it to different schools around the neighbourhood.
