A session from the 'EN RESiDÈNCiA' program

Final sprint for the Culture and Education creative programs

During the next few days, people will be able to enjoy the projects developed by the students, teachers, and artists of Esccena Pilot, Tot Dansa and EN RESiDÈNCiA.

Despite the current COVID-19 restrictions, the Culture and Education courses Escena Pilot, Tot Dansa and EN RESiDÈNCiA were able to go ahead. The commitment with these programs — promoted by the Barcelona City Council and in cooperation with the Barcelona Education Consortium as well as several other cultural and educational agents in the city — is part of the Cultural Rights Plan, more specifically, in the context of the Cultural and Educational Measure: the right to cultural participation and practical and artistic education throughout life. These creative processes are now at their final stages and ready to be displayed to the public.

The program Escena Pilot links theatrical language with secondary and high school students through an experience of collective creation. The aim is to give young people a meaningful theatrical experience in contact with a professional environment. The initiative started two years ago and was immediately faced with the pandemic; however, four centers participated in this year's edition, which is now ending, with five teachers and 75 students. Their work, a documentary and artistic proposal by Lali Álvarez and Gemma Martínez, will be played at Teatre Lliure de Gràcia on May 13th and 14th.

COVID-19 could not stop the shared creative process lived by 112 young people and 22 teachers from 12 public high schools in Barcelona through the program Tot Dansa, either. An experiential activity of collective creation brings the language of movement and contemporary dance creation to secondary and high school students. The process will conclude on May 18th and 19th, and on June 10th, when the resulting show will be played in the Mercat de les Flors.

The final program, EN RESiDÈNCiA, which started in 2009, proposes a working space shared between artists, students and teachers from the secondary public school system. Throughout the school year and within the learning schedule, creators from many different disciplines and generations develop a process of artistic creation alongside a group of young people, from the first idea to the final public presentation. 24 high schools have taken part in this year's edition – three more than last year. Up until June 16th, different venues will feature public presentations of the works and creative processes.
