Publications and articles

The step of putting ideas onto paper is complex and I feel it’s not my forte. Despite that I have had the privilege of being a co-author in exquisite collaborations and author of articles, reports and publications.

Article Artistic Community Art: in search of an adjusted tension, page 71 in the Annual Culture Report of the CONCA 2018, Generalitat de Catalunya 2018.

 

The community arts are living a moment of special visibility in Catalonia and, for this reason, it is especially interesting that the National Council of Culture and Arts echoes exactly this in its annual report.

This article offers the reader elements to find out about community arts and get an idea of ​​the diversity of existing proposals, the breadth of approaches, and the variety of points of view that bring together the projects and organizations that promote this type of artistic activity. In addition, the approach to the current Catalan reality raises questions and proposes challenges to an activity that is developing in an environment of tension with the dominant system.

Despite being aware of differences and existing divergent positions, we can feel the possibility of creating our own space for the development of these projects. That could constitute a network of mutual support, use of resources and knowledge and, ultimately, an articulated system of the sector, from different logics to the prevailing ones

Author of Special on inclusive performing arts and scenic equipment, Open to the public, nº 4, 2015 Madrid of The Network of Theaters, Festivals and Audiences of public ownership.

 

The 4th edition of OPEN TO THE PUBLIC is a monograph on “Performing Arts and Social Inclusion”. With the help of experts in this field, the Network has tried to address the theme of “arts in diversity” from different perspectives in the search for an answer to its valorization and normalization.

It is evident that any project that focuses on breaking down the barriers that make culture equally inaccessible to everyone, both in a participative and active mode, is an example of good practice. But we do not try through this publication to compile a set of good intentions. We actually try to go down to the palpable reality and relate plural experiences that, over the years, have materialized as stable projects, which were sustained over time and that have found a path to promote social inclusion and functional diversity. The combination between public and private initiative is configured as the only viable way that will allow us to achieve these goals.

The Spanish Network of Theaters wants in this issue of OPEN TO THE PUBLIC to explore real situations and to highlight praiseworthy experiences, as they pursue the loyalty and tenacity of practitioners, a process of social inclusion and functional diversity in the performing arts evaluation chain.

The publication is divided into two chapters: “Performing Arts and Diversity” and “Performing Arts and Community”.
