“Família! El dissabte va d’art!” (“Families! Saturday is about art!”) End of 2016-17 season

On 20th May 2017, from 10.30 am to 2 pm in Es Baluard’s Guillem Cifre de Colonya Educational Space, the end of the 2016-17 season of the “Familia! El dissabte va d’art”! (“Families! Saturday is about art!”) programme will take place, associated to the activities of International Museum Day 2017.

Apart from the customary documental display of the season’s workshops, which will take us back to the good times families have enjoyed in the museum this year, there will also be diverse activities as well as the creation of a relational sound space produced by Paula Franco, in collaboration with the UIB’s Grup de Recerca en Art i Educació (GRAiE, Art and Education Research Group).
The sound proposal is entitled NUS, and will occupy a large part of the Educational Space. It is an interactive installation with a fun approach focussing on the many possibilities of the communicative act and the role played by transmitters and receivers. The piece invites everybody who wants to take part to experience, tell and listen to the stories people wish to reveal and which had never before been told in a museum, on the basis of their own subjectivity. The educational department has worked along these lines of exploring narrative possibilities based on the works in the museum’s permanent collection in the family workshops and on the basis of the NUS installation it will extend it to several different social groups during the months of May and June.NUS will be invigorated by participative musical proposals throughout the morning, thanks to the collaboration of the UIB Education Faculty in an activity aimed at the whole family.Music programme for the day:

Elio Comparini 
Composer, musical arranger and producer. Atmosphere of Nus.

11h. Kai Landre
He defines his music as acoustic Indie-folk touched by ukulele. The absence of complexity in his melodies, mixed with his voice, create an atmosphere of Indie tranquillity.

12h. Paula Franco
Paula Franco will play acoustic pop songs made with three chords.

13h. Arate
Flamenco fusion group formed by the pianist Sara Mingolla and Ramón González, who has been a street flamenco specialist and guitarist since he was a child. Arate (meaning ‘blood’ in the caló gypsy language), is a fusion of two generations combining modern music, zambras, rumba… and including farruca, fandango and bulería, among others. They make music from the soul.

This activity links to the ICOM proposal for 18th May, International Museum Day, this year under the theme of “Museums and contested history. Saying the unspeakable in museums”.

The activity is free and aimed at a family audience, in particular the families who have taken part in the season’s workshops, and is open to anyone who would like to join in and spend a different morning at the museum.
