From Tuesday, October 22, to Sunday, November 17, 2019

An exhibition by Interfícies with the collaboration of La Capella.

Interfícies is a community culture and health platform that promotes processes connected with the practices of art, education and citizen involvement. Active since 2017 in the Raval and Roquetes neighbourhoods, the initiative is led by Transductores and co-ordinated by a team of teaching staff in Community Psychology at the University of Barcelona, with the support of two local networks and various groups of artists and other creative figures.

Interfícies developed five artistic interventions that combine artistic practices with citizens’ participation, affective, communicative and social aspects associated with the neighbourhoods involved, a series of workshops, events, activities and gatherings. In addition to this exhibition, there will be a final day-long event held on 14 November and an online publication. This exhibition features a range of material from four of the artistic interventions: Roquetes, barri saludable (Roquetes, Healthy Neighbourhood, 2018), by Teleduca; Territoris que curen (Territories that Heal, 2018), by Territoris Oblidats in the Raval; Repertoris variats (Varied Repertoires, 2019), by Lo Relacional in Roquetes; and Estigmes-identitats de barri (Neighbourhood Stigmas and Identities, 2019), by Forn de Teatre Pa’tothom in the Raval. The show also includes a documentation area with materials related to the process and the educational and research work done by the groups of students and teachers who took part, as well as videos on the various interventions and other events. The fifth project, Els remeis de la Trini (Trini’s Remedies), and assorted material from the two projects presented here mounted in Roquetes are being displayed at the same time as this exhibition in the Casal SomLaPera! in Trinitat Nova.
