STUDENTS OF SECONDARY EDUCATION, A’ LEVELS AND VOCATIONAL TRAINING
During our visit around the exhibition, we will focus on how our physical and social environment have been damaged by an irresponsible exploitation of plastic, and suggest alternative sustainable practices. We will then look at how images are used to interpret and construct our surroundings and assess their power to reveal and condemn the inadequacies of plastic.
After viewing a selection of protest art works, in groups we will enumerate the cognitive points our city lacks regarding plastic waste contamination. Once identified, each group will develop a creative project designed to raise awareness about the problem of waste plastic in our lives.
And there will be the incentive of being able to view our projects made reality, as any actions conceived in the workshops which are viable will be played out in a real social context as protest art projects.
PO&PLA AUDIOVISUAL: “Ready and.. Acti@n!”
Our visit round the exhibition will show us the importance of the audiovisual medium as a tool to condemn or raise awareness about the ever more evident deterioration of our oceans. Photographs and videos have the ability to bring us closer to a reality we often choose to ignore. By analyzing the techniques used, we will explore how the environment is treated by the audiovisual medium to make people aware of the magnitude of the disaster while at the same time suggesting ways to reverse it.
In small groups of 4 or 5 people, we will create a short audiovisual piece revolving around the theme of the environment. Initially, we will look at examples of how to bring to the screen the idea we wish to convey, and after a brief introduction to the more technical aspects of filming, the groups will begin to work as mini teams on film sets. The result will be a micro-reportage of each group’s stance on the problem of mass consumption of plastics. The workshop will close with a screening of all the pieces and a final discussion.
