ARTIST / ORGANISATION
LAS DE AHORA is a multidisciplinary project whose aim is to generate a space for dialogue and interaction in which a group of teenagers in the fourth year of compulsory secondary education at Trinitat Nova school in Barcelona will reflect on how they would like to be perceived and how in which they would like to represent themselves through cinema and drama.
Over 12 meetings that will take place at a secondary school, different activities related to film and the theatre will be organised in order to observe, reflect and perform. The whole process will be filmed and presented as a documentary after the end of the project.
Trinitat Nova is considered a school of “high complexity, meaning that its pupils come from vulnerable environments. Many are immigrants, live situations of conflict within their family environment and have few financial resources.
To this must be added the personal situation that students face: the end of compulsory studies and an age at which one’s identity and social, political and sexual consciousness are formed. The school is in the Trinitat Nova neighbourhood, where there is only one community centre, as well as an Andalusian cultural centre. From the centre of Barcelona to the periphery, the number of cultural and art spaces falls exponentially.
