One day you get a message with a location. This location is the hiding place of a letter that somebody has written to you. This somebody, whose identity you don’t know, proposes an exclusive sound experience for you, a musical gift.
 

Can you make music by writing words? Hiding Place is a proposal to work with sound without making music, it is an unidentified action that only you and I know, a meeting without meeting.
 

Individually, we will write a letter for someone we don’t know, proposing a sound experience. We will then hide the letter somewhere in the city so that a person who is communicated the location can pick it up. But, bear in mind that another person might find the letter first. And, of course, you will also receive your letter in a hiding place.

A group of teachers and people interested in education who are also fascinated by audiovisuals decided to look out the window together. This is where we wanted to start, looking with fresh eyes, listening with attention to little things and touching film with our own hands.
 

This sowed a desire to continue the project into this school year. We want to share our educational practices, to experiment jointly so that we can then propose something different to our students, to create in order to continue learning.
 

If you are interested in audiovisuals and education, we encourage you to join our group which will meet monthly to discuss shared processes.

We are going to put ourselves in an unexpected position. It is possible that we end up teaching something that we didn’t know how to do before and somebody whistles loudly for the first time. This could lead to something odd and makes us think for a moment about ways of teaching removed from the academy and art, or that might drive us crazy trying to separate everything from the rules. Or maybe not. We are going to put ourselves in an unexpected position and see whether something changes.
 

The Last Letter is Q is a workshop for teachers exploring queer pedagogies and their derivations.
 

Aimed at teachers in nursery, primary, secondary, third-level and non-regulated education.
 

Two 2-hour sessions, times to be decided with the group.
 

Minimum of 4 people per group.

A box of fanzines published by women, a shelf of books classified by weight or colour, an envelope with tiny publications... A library can be almost anything.
 

Last year, along with Sonia and Andrea, the librarians at CA2M, we started a collaborative project to create an archive of art publications with art students at IES Europa secondary school and to investigate the possibilities for self-publishing. The project consisted in moving the discarded holdings from the CA2M library. Art students took the books, catalogues and fanzines to their classes. Once there, we started a process to construct the shelving for the library and to imagine other possible ways of activating it. However, the project was cut short by the confinement imposed because of COVID-19.
 

This year we propose picking up the project where we left off. To create a strange and unsuspected library based on these and other holdings. Together with the art students, we will rethink what a collective archive actually means and we will question the logic of a library in order to generate a new narrative. The project seeks to develop new possibilities from creativity and resistance, to bring students into closer contact with contemporary creation and to create new bonds of collaboration between departments and institutions.
 

During confinement, we wanted to continue developing this project remotely. To this end, we invited Andrea Galaxina to think of a proposal to send to the students. Taking the form of a tutorial, Andrea prepared this fanzine to think of the creative possibilities of self-publishing.
 

Read Editar con nada. Una pequeña guía práctica (y un poco teórica) para hacer fanzines. (Publish with nothing. A brief practical (and a little theoretical) guide to making fanzines).

From the teachers’ room, the boiler room, the fire escape behind the building, the roof, or from whatever is behind the door at the end of the corridor. This workshop proposes entering those places at school where we have never been before and to reveal them through the camera as undiscovered settings you’ve never seen, or maybe you have, perhaps in a movie.

There was a storm in the main hall at the conservatory in which one could hear thunder and little by little the first ping-pong balls began to drop. When the thousand drops finally stopped bouncing and lay motionless on the floor, we began to listen.

This year, with the assistance of Paloma Carrasco, we are going to adorn this silent calm with tiny improvised sounds. Paloma invents with the body and space, plays the piano and the cello, and she also dances with them.

Listening to the train minutes before its arrival, defragmenting light into an infinite colour spectrum, building your own space that is governed without hierarchies.

This year we started a new artist residency project in collaboration with the Federico García Lorca School in Móstoles.
Following years of research, we continue to think about the importance of introducing art-based practices into educational institutions in order to develop multidisciplinary projects involving the entire school in a transversal way. Now more than ever, it seems essential to us to explore processes that promote other types of learning in the classroom, adjust relationships with schools and generate new ties with museums. We are thus interested in continuing to research how artists can affect the education system and vice versa, and how this particular public school can return the experience both to the artists and the CA2M’s education team.

Throughout the third term of the academic year, the artist Agnés Pé will develop a sensorial and sound research project with students in the Caracola classroom and with first-year students.
The classroom will move to the school’s vegetable-garden area to build a sensory laboratory where it will experiment with other ways of perceiving reality. This space will challenge the senses and imagine other forms of governance.

This will allow us to continue researching how both desire and emotion can affect schools. A project that thinks small-scale and places students as the subjects and not as the objects of education.

The CA2M’s roof garden has been up and running for seven years, a time during which we have lived through an intense process in which many people have taken part, making it a meeting point predicated on working together and sharing know-how.

Since its beginnings, the roof garden was conceived as a space that would go beyond the limits of an organic agriculture school and would form a community. This goal has been fulfilled. Today, the roof garden is the focal point for a group of people who have accumulated many years of learning, enjoyment and coexistence based on the practice of agroecology and permaculture, the recovery of traditional know-how and learning from peasant farmers and a reflection on the challenges of sustainability.

Today, the community formed around the roof garden at CA2M is taking on the challenge of opening up to new people without forgetting the research and experimentation that motivates existing members of the community. For this reason, this year we will be giving an opportunity to all those who are people interested in learning more about agroecology and permaculture, at a beginner’s level, without ignoring the needs and rhythms of learning of the members who have been active since the beginning and demand more specific workshops with advanced contents. For this purpose, during the first part of the year, the workshops will be divided into two categories: beginners (*) and advanced (**). We will also work in two different schedules, to give more possibilities to people who, for personal or working reasons, cannot attend in conventional hours. 

In collaboration with Instituto de Transición Rompe el Círculo.

PROGRAMME OF ACTIVITIES FOR THE ROOF TERRACE GARDEN

PROGRAMME SEPTEMBER - DECEMBER 2020

ROOF TERRACE GARDEN WORKSHOP (CA2M)

11 September 11:00 - 13:00 | Recovering the kitchen garden **
After the parenthesis caused by the pandemic, we will return to the roof garden and begin tasks of recovery and maintenance.

18 September 17:00 - 19:00 | Starting an ecological kitchen garden *
We will show you the basic principles of organic agriculture and we will begin to prepare seedbeds for the autumn. In addition, we will carry out the usual gardening tasks proper to the month of September.

25 September 11:00 - 13:00 | A kitchen garden in all dimensions **
We will create and place elements in the garden that will allow us to use the space of the roof terrace both horizontally as well as vertically, giving it a more uncultivated look and at once making it more welcoming.

2 October 17:00 - 19:00 | The square-metre kitchen garden *
We will learn new cultivation methods that will help us to maximize production in small spaces. A very interesting workshop for city dwellers who generally do not have large spaces where they can plant.

AGRO-ECOLOGICAL WORKSHOPS (GABRIEL CELAYA SCHOOL)

9 October 11:00 - 13:00 | Gardening in terraces **
We will work with different raised terrace systems and create spaces for planting during autumn in the school garden.

16 October 17:00 - 19:00 | How to make good compost *
We will learn how to make a compost bin and lay the foundations for the production of compost as a key element in our agroecological system.

23 October 17:00 - 19:00 | Creating an aromatic herb spiral I (* and **)
A spiral of aromatic herbs, as well as being a unique and aesthetically pleasing system of cultivation, helps us to understand the specific needs of each plant and how to create the necessary microclimates to grow herbs with very different needs in the one place.

30 October 17:00 - 19:00 | Creating an aromatic herb spiral II (* and **)
We will continue learning how to grow in spiral and will plant the chosen species.

SUSTAINABLE FOOD WORKSHOPS (LOCATION TO BE DECIDED)

6 November 17:00 - 19:00 | The pandemic: the boomerang effect of a diet that destroys the ecosystem (* and **)
We will get this new module underway with a current topic. This year is different. A virus has severely challenged our health, economic and social system. We have discovered that our purported dominion over nature has serious and irreversible consequences. In this session, we will explore in depth how the pandemic is connected with the environmental crisis and the role our unsustainable diet plays in all this.

13 November 17:00 - 19:00 | Eating better to look after the planet (* and **)
In a double, theoretical and practical, session we will first take a panoramic overview of global food production, differentiating industrial production from agroecological production. Afterwards, we will share recipes to help us enjoy new healthier and more sustainable eating habits.

20 November 17:00 - 19:00 | A chestnut celebration (* and **)
Popular festivals in the rural world have always been based on wisdom and respect for the rhythms of nature. In this session, and by means of a castañada, an autumn festival based on chestnuts, we will call to mind popular celebrations based on reciprocity, joy and sustainability. In addition, we will share recipes using chestnuts and other nuts.

27 November 17:00 - 19:00 | Do we know what we eat? (* and **)
The food industry has become so removed from natural processes of food production that today we do not know what the food we eat actually contains. Some of the goals of this workshop will be to look at how to analyse labels, which products are less healthy and to debunk certain ideas on supposedly healthy foods.

11 December 17:00 - 19:00 | A zero-residue Christmas (* and **)
Christmas is a time of the year when wasteful consumption gets out of control. In this session we will think together about alternatives and make sustainable gifts that will allow us to reduce the environmental impact of this holiday season.

18 December 18:30 | Healthy Christmas recipes (* and **)
We propose a workshop with recipes so that our holiday celebrations will be healthy, sustainable and economic and at once very enjoyable. Because it is possible to eat well and surprise family and friends without helping to make Christmas a small environmental disaster.

You can do a lot of things with fire. Clay, earth, can be fired to make all sorts of vessels and containers. Water evaporates and the material hardens, a transformation provoked by fire. We want to undertake a project to experiment with this whole process. We will use clay like in other places and like here, we will use it all.

Fire trees are pieces that burn inside and outside, they are a kiln in themselves, they fire themselves. To this end we need a lot of people, a lot of time, a big space and a lot of fire.

All activities at CA2M are free.

In a few thousand years a future archaeological excavation will discover what were the limits of the city of Móstoles in 2020 and there they will find, on the site of the Children’s Home, bits of ceramic which, when pieced together, will create objects with no recognizable use purpose. The experts will try to guess where they came from, as they are neither utilitarian or decorative objects. The forms would suggest some kind of mysterious practice closer to the rituals and customs of the former inhabitants of this place.

During this school year, together with the inhabitants of the Children’s Home, we will make loads of extensible, ephemeral, detachable or permanent attachments, traces and remains for the future, sounds that will fill the space and slowly become echoes and then memories. We will create a set of sculptural pieces, hybrids between musical instruments and masks, monstrous fixtures that will be the memory of experiences that took place in this house over the course of these months.

We want to invent our own biography, who we want to be together and how we want to be remembered.
