With Montsita Rierola, Jordi Lafon, Assumpta Cirera_Tuti, Ana M Palomo and Eva Marichalar.

As part of the exhibition Goula. A project of art, games and memory.

Tuesday 9th, 16th and 23rd, and Saturday 27th March 2021. Virtual format.
Aimed at teachers registered with AE10 and open to all those interested in participating.

A training seminar within the context of the exhibition Goula; a Project of Art, Games and Memory, included in the activities to celebrate 10 years of ART AND SCHOOL.

An online course aimed at teachers who are enrolled in the 10th edition of Art and School and open to all those interested in participating. For teachers in Early Childhood Education, teachers in Primary and Secondary Education, and open to educators from museums and art centres.


The seminar will be structured in four sessions: 3 online sessions, and one session comprising a walk outdoors.

- 3 1-hour sessions on Tuesdays, March 9th, 16th and 23rd, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
- 1 3-hour session on Saturday 27th March from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.


The main objective of the course is to present an artistic project organised via games and play. The seminar will include the exhibition’s artists, its curator and educator, and an artist and walker who will propose a participatory ludic outdoors activity.

The intention is to publicise among the educational community the process and results of a games- and play-focused project which offers a space for critical reflection, in order to advance the implementation of educational models that take into account the links between formal and informal education, and so exercise an influence upon knowledge by means of the arts.

1. Immense Little
Montsita Rierola and Jordi Lafon
Tuesday March 9th, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The creators of the exhibition Goula; a Project of Art, Games and Memory will explain the various difficulties of artistic production with reference to a number of exhibited pieces, in order to explain their approach to the work, their chosen perspective, and how the work evolved during a process that lasted more than ten years.

2. Observe, connect and play
Assumpta Cirera_Tuti
Tuesday, March 16th from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Exploring in a practical session how observation, connection and play are involved in Jordi Lafon’s and Montsita Rierola’s artistic output. Approaching the creative fact with a thoughtful gaze and a playful outlook, providing new interpretations.

3. From artistic creations to the words that accompany them
Ana M. Palomo
Tuesday, March 23rd from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

A discussion about the process of writing the words that accompany artistic creations. These texts make no attempt to explain nor to limit the interpretation of the exhibited work, but rather raise questions for critical reflection. The purpose of words is, perhaps, to mediate between the work and the visitor to the exhibition.

4. Changing the subject
Eva Marichalar-Freixa
Saturday, March 27th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Meeting place at the Museu de l’Art de la Pell. (Comfortable walking footwear is recommended). Is changing the subject a way to get over it, or to go beyond it? Aren’t these two expressions synonymous? What would happen to us if we were to play at peeling away and changing the symbolic meaning of words? What if we were to take action by taking them for a walk? This workshop invites participants to walk around outside, talking about the pedagogical meaning of going out, getting lost, letting go, escaping, skirting. About the sense of changing the subject. Yes. With all its power.

Jordi Lafon, 1967. He is a visual artist. His works establish a relationship between objects, people and their environment to create a story of matter, space and time inscribed in a landscape understood as a setting from which relationships of attachment and conflict, poetic and political, arise. In his projects, he often advances participation and collaboration as ways of exchange and learning through shared experiences such as walking as an aesthetic practice, drawing, photography and writing.
