ILLUSTRATED CITY / BON PASTOR 2022
Idensitat + Bon Pastor Library, the Bon Pastor Neighbourhood Association, the Peña Barcelonista, the Bon Pastor Choir, the Time Bank, Fem Soroll and Dimonis de Bon Pasfoc.

Illustrated City is a project of research and experimentation dealing with limits and connections that brings together creative practices and socio-cultural practices deployed in the local context. It is developed in the context of the Bon Pastor neighbourhood, with invited groups and organisations which joined the project in order to imagine and to work collaboratively in a process of creation and dialogue, culminating in a large-scale book.

The project, which commenced in June 2022, combines processes of exploration, narration and materialisation which, taken together, create learning environments, and allow various boundaries to be crossed; physical, relational, cognitive, disciplinary, emotional, territorial, etc.; and which question concepts around identity, self-referentiality and neighbourhood narratives. The final result, conceived as an illustrated book, reflects the creative process driven by the diversity of people and organisations involved in various active spaces within the neighbourhood.

In this sense, "Exploration" refers to the process of getting to know and involving various groups active in the neighbourhood to generate narratives from their everyday activities, and from the perspective of diversity and difference. The actions that form part of the exploration come together through meetings between Idensitat and each of the participating groups in the project, based on sharing conversations, experiences, photographs and other materials contributed by the people linked to each group.

From "Narration" arises a process of synthesising elements collected during the exploratory phase, and the possibility of generating the discursive element, formed on the basis of the activities carried out by each organisation. In collaboration with various individual participants and participating organisations, shared work spaces are being created, in order to envision possible narratives developed from current reality, memory or also fiction.

Finally, "Materialise" means to build, to create, to shape, to think with our hands. In giving shape to ideas, experiences or inventions requires direct involvement. To give form to this experience, a blank cloth “page” of 200 x 200 cm gathers together elements decided upon during the narration process. The set of textile “pages” will make up the large book, or " Book-Landscape ".

The object can become a public forum, a physical place or a space for lived memories. In short, it is a scenario which is activated and deactivated based on gathering together the identities, desires or activities of the neighbourhood’s organisations, far beyond its territorial limits.
