Workshop of the GranGent/GentGran program that, from a social and educational level, aims to respond to groups of older people. With GranGent/GentGran the knowledge of the collective is put in value, offering them quality cultural activities, thus enhancing an active ageing.
The workshop will take place, during the Summer of 2019, at different nursing homes in the island (Palma, Santanyí, Marratxí and Alcúdia). We will intend to relate the participants life stories, focused on the photographic portrait and identity, with works from the exhibition “FACES. A dialogue between the Es Baluard Collection and the BEEP Electronic Art Collection” which sets forth research on the concept of portrait.
We will introduce the concept of time capsule and through photography and the use of new technologies, we will choose messages that we would like to send to our younger self and also to our future self. These messages will become a reflection tool for all, going from the personal to the collective and thus to contrast the knowledge and ways of living current and past.
