Art and social practices

Andrew Argues That Dunayevich to watch every social process as an artistic act and describes the experience of collective production relied on the Certainty That the strength of a story has transformational power of social experiences.

 

Art is not just for artists, is for everyone. We all want to be artists to feel alive, to know we did something in This Way in the world. every We Encourage social process is a collective artistic act itself. An exercise in creativity to solve social Conflicts. That social creativity That transforms the common areas, the time and That Gives us the feeling of going to another dimension.

Now, the question we ask is how can we compete With the adrenaline That produces urban violence? The sense of Belonging to criminal groups, economic output That carries Un certain illegal practices or different reactions to the lack of equity and justice.

Exactly that's the point:. To understand the same binding Mechanisms of spiraling urban violence for use in reverse creating and Promoting the emergence of new social practices . Practices That Provide mainly young people, a sense of Belonging, a common goal Stimulation of an adverse change reality, to transform a problem collectively, Along with others, and be Recognized. Ultimately, it will be the collective hero (the Eternauta) Which achieves transform reality.

Communication is essential to do. Look and listen is part of the proposal Since the Civil Partnership Agora tried to use the visual language to convey social practices.

The Agora, in his capacity of the Ibero-American Forum Node Southern Cone and Caribbean Best Practices, selects, validates and disseminates Initiatives to be presented from Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay and Chile UN Habitat program.

We Believe That the visual language, and Contain artistic elements, reveals Experiences That tell stories of places, people, problems and solutions for its richness and breadth allow us to Reflect on social transformation.

Malthus, the camera Intervenes and if we are careful and respectful of the people Becomes a documentary practice itself. device A participatory That Allows all form part of the audiovisual.

In turn, we try to Contribute to the result presentation and Enhance what the community is doing. Waiting to be Recognized and Malthus Achieve the respect of society. However, the way this story is Told is very important, Because You can Achieve the opposite effect or refusal to participate.

It is important to Emphasize That at this time the urban culture is Largely audiovisual crossed-so-often and Dissemination of These practices are hindered by Existing Mechanisms in the media for the way They have traditionally taken the news, his gaze focused on the negative aspects of reality, que leads to fall in public places like the complaint and the complaint no Proposals on the one hand, or the victimization of poverty and social determinism on the other.

Improve communication of social projects has to do With the need to break the isolation and social fragmentation.

In our documentary does not have a leader but an articulator and many actors who are part of a story, of a flowing system, are Strengthened ties, knowing That in the distribution of power can I Conflicts emerge. In search of transformation always two Conflicts Appear . solve The problem to the conflict itself and the human, organizational and what the links That weave When working in teams.

Finally we take the phrase Néstor García Canclini: "... the ultimate goal is not to Represent the voice of the silenced but to understand and name the places where his or her daily life conflict Demands With Others." Not Because We are not interested That other visible realities are hidden. But Because we are interested in from the Agora show by the force of a story, the power of social transformation of social experiences. Because humans learn best from stories. As the stories That They Told us kids always Contained Which from a fable to learn.
