Positive balance of the project "Support your equipment"

Presentation of the project, at Pati Manning.


Five schools of the El Raval District have supported this course the Liceu, within the project "Support your equipment", promoted in the framework of the Cultural Raval.

The project, which was coordinated by Fundació Tot Raval, has the purpose that all the students of Raval know all the cultural equipment in the neighborhood. In addition, it aims to develop a shared process of long duration that will form part of the academic curriculum. The idea is for students to enlarge knowledge through their participation in an enriching educational experience. 

The Liceu has offered activities in the different educational stages, from the nursery to the vocational training (students of Institut Milà i Fontanals, Escola Vedruna-Àngels, Escola Bressol Municipal Canigó, Escola Labouré and Institut Miquel Tarradell).

Basically, the activities consisted in giving at the educational center an active information session about the surroundings of the Opera and the Theatre. In a second phase, a school group has gone to the Liceu to attend a visit especially prepared for them and also to participate in an activity of the Education Service called "The Opera, an emotion."

In this initiative have also participated MACBA, CCCB, the Filmoteca de Catalunya, Palau Güell, Museu Marítim de Barcelona and eight of the fourteen schools in El Raval. 

Last Wednesday, June 18, took place at Pati Manning the presentation of the project. The ceremony was attended by the directors of those equipment, the directors of the schools and the Councillor of the District of Ciutat Vella, Mercè Homs.

Due to the success of participation achieved, the Councilor pointed that they will work to extend this experience to other neighborhoods, although it's not always going to be associated with a cultural equipment but with the one that you have in each area.
