Project Details

Description

From the Creative Studies Group of the Faculty of Creation we are working on a research/creation project that aims to understand and publicize a creative movement in the country that is at the intersection between the “maker” culture, the “craft”, “do it yourself”, reuse and recycling adapted to a national reality and transversal to the southern hemisphere that demands increasingly recursive and creative solutions.


As part of this research, we are preparing a multimedia publication that exemplifies and demonstrates this movement of intersection between creativity, recursiveness, applied arts and crafts and that also calls the people who consult it to action. The publication includes unpublished textual, photographic and audiovisual material with high standards in its design and production.

Keywords

Manifesto, research/creation, creative movement, “maker” culture, “craft” culture, “do it yourself”, recursiveness, creativity, global south.

Commitments / Obligations

Create a publication that collects profiles, interviews and instructional content of 12 people who, in the opinion of the project's curatorial committee, exceptionally exemplify the “maker” culture in our country.

It will therefore be a significant platform of visibility for their work as well as a manual/manifesto of the current state of an expanding cultural movement that at this current moment acquires special relevance.

As it is a non-profit project, participation in this initiative does not include remuneration for the 12 people whose work will be disseminated in the project.
