Programming of educational and cultural series

FRIDAYS WITH… CAIXAFORUM. (2012-2014)

Concept and management: Artsmoved
For: “La Caixa” Foundation, CaixaForum

As CaixaForum opens till midnight every last Friday of the month, in 2012 “La Caixa” Foundation commissioned us to design a cultural programme to attract young public.

The series Divendres amb… (Fridays with…) was our proposal. It brings young artists who are prominent in the field of visual arts to share their experiences with the young public in a casual tone, perfect for a laid back Friday night. Not only did Artsmoved design the programme, but also its setup – the activity takes place in the lobby where we place comfortable puffs that make the experience even more enjoyable.

VARIABLE FUTURE. EDUCAIXA. (2014)

Concept and management: Artsmoved
For: “La Caixa” Foundation, EduCaixa, CaixaForum

What to take into account when choosing your university career? Can we foresee the professional opportunities that our university degree will offer? What is the key to succeed in the professional world? Is there a future after graduating in Humanities? Can I study engineering and work as an artist? Does a biologist belong only in a laboratory? And a lawyer only in a lawyer’s office?

These are some of the topics that FUTUR VARIABLE tackles in its series of talks that brings together high-school students and illustrators, cultural officers, biologists, script writers and engineers that have discovered alternative professional paths.

Through an optimistic approach and a close dialogue with the students our goal is that teenagers become aware of the fact that future is indeed variable.
