Levadura. Programa de residencias de creadores en escuelas
Levadura (Yeast) is a programme of residencies for creators/educators in nursery and primary schools. Its objective is to introduce contemporary creation concepts and methods into classrooms. To this end, the artist and the school work together to develop an artistic project whose processbased nature facilitates the participation and empowerment of students and teachers.
Since 2014, CentroCentro has participated in this programme along with Matadero, Medialab-Prado and Conde Duque Cultural Centre. Via an open call for local creators, an artist is sought who is interested in opening their artistic practice to the educational environment and who understands their creative work as a vehicle for learning.
In the present edition CentroCentro will sponsor a residency for a creator in the sphere of practices linked to the construction and transmission of narratives (and imaginaries) through orality. Through this theme and the practices deriving from it, we aim to contribute towards redefining the student –who is responsible and critical at each stage of the process– as an agent with an active role in their own education.
The selected project will be developed in a primary school, from 22 April to 19 May 2019.
