ARTIST AT WORK 2016 - 2017
This school year we are beginning a new long-term relationship with the Manuel Núñez Arenas public school in Vallecas. The artist-in-residence project will be based on dialogue with the school’s team of teachers and the parents who are actively involved with the school. The artist will first take some time to get acquainted with how the school is run and its people and then connect it with his/her own artistic research. For this reason, the residency project will address issues of social justice, the core theme for the activities at Nuñez Arenas this year.
The project will involve the whole school, focusing on the work of two different years in primary school as well as the parents who wish to be involved. Together we will all imagine new forms of functioning and of intervention in the space in a primary school.
