Degrowth for Artists Barcelona

Degrowth for Artists Barcelona

Upcoming Degrowth for Artists workshop led by artist Arnau Sala Saez at Centre d'Art Santa Mònica (Barcelona) in the framework of "(creating) Situations: arts and thought Collective learning and research programme" this May 16th.

Good Praxis is art education for climate justice, celebrating successful models of resistance and survival. As not everyone can participate in blockades or strikes, mutual aid gives people agency to organise themselves to meet the unmet needs of people in power. Based on solidarity, not charity, this support is called mutual aid.

Following the introduction, we will do a mutual aid workshop to outline the group's wants, haves and needs and draw up possible new mutual aid projects (across borders and local). Mobilising on a grassroots level can be essential to introduce degrowth principles locally and across borders. Through this workshop, you can learn how art can drive change, create new initiatives and strengthen local communities. 

By focusing on the participant's past experiences, individual desires and future, it’s possible to create new organisations and ideas, including all participants. This workshop has already been arranged in several around Europe and carries the experience of previous workshops with its organisers.
