In collaboration with Marie Monique Schaper, we were selected for the grant Art al Barri for the project “Lo urbano invisible” funded by Centro Cívic Sant Jordi-Ribera Baixa and the City Council of El Prat de Llobregat.
With the project “Lo urbano invisible” we aimed at generating new ways of expressing the identity of the neighborhood, using participatory research and co-creating cartography in different formats. The project focused on searching and making visible those invisible and intangible elements that constitute and build the identity of the neighborhood beyond its urban and architectural structure. To this end the project focused on three main axes: 1) the neighborhood and the emotions; 2) the neighborhood and memories; 3) the neighborhood and the wishes.
During the project, we worked with the neighborhood association, a local primary school and a residency for the elderly. Their contributions were summarized in a final exhibit at the Centro Cívic Sant Jordi-Ribera Baixa and in an augmented guided tour in the neighborhood.
