ART AS A TOOL OF SOCIAL COHESION
In this intervention project the neighbors are protagonists. The neighborhood acquires a commitment to active participation during an open process in which people and agents, the mediation and facilitation team, the guest artist and the Municipal Culture Area are involved to give it continuity. It is an artistic intervention alive in itself insofar as it transforms the neighborhood and also its relationships.
In the 2017-2018 edition, the Lapitze neighborhood participates in this program, which is developed in three phases: laboratory of ideas, sessions to define the scope of action; artist lab, sessions led by an artist; production, development sessions and presentation of the intervention.
This program is organized by the Irun City Council and coordinated by Bitamine Faktoria.
