EDUCART || El uso de pintura mural en procesos educativos

EDUCART || El uso de pintura mural en procesos educativos

El training course llega a su fin Sábado 22 de septiembre, 12 de la mañana, se empieza a escuchar el revuelo frente al muro ya lleno de color. “We are finished”, “Ya está”, “vég”… aplausos, abrazos, “selfies”, fotos, vídeos e impaciencia por empezar a recoger y limpiar todo el material y los espacios y recibir a las invitadas. Lo que estamos preparando no es una inauguración, sino que es una apertura y una entrega del Mural a la comunidad. Un acto cargado de emoción y simbolismo, en el que queremos que todo......


Cala: The team

There are about fifteen of us in the Cala team . About half of us work exclusively on the Project with modest salaries. The other half has other jobs. All of us do unpaid work for the project. We are one team and we try to take the necessary steps to take on the management of the whole project. Most of the work and everyday management is done, obviously, by the Cala “workers” , but the “volunteers” take on specific tasks according to their personal situation, and desired commitment level. Our approach is......


Cala:Our Ideas

We believe that: The work of building “Another Possible World ” also has an essential component of education/training and cultural creation : a necessary fighting field for the development of other values, other attitudes, both alternative and contrary to the prevailing values of today’s world. With these ideas, a team of committed and specialised people have carried out a stable, horizontal, respectful and useful support project, partly based on a permanent education/training centre. This support project has among its possible target population: • Individuals and groups involved in education, interested in the......


Cala: Basic intentions

Cala Project intends to: •Keep and develop a committed group, in a constant process of self-education, self-training and construction as a group, diverse,  egalitarian…a permanent education/training centre to do workshops, all kinds of meetings, work camps… • Provide an alternative encouraging educational experience, a training based on collective implication. • Contribute to the development of networks – through contact, likings and support- in such a way that enables us to play an active part in training. • Act especially on the local level, encouraging initiatives working for community development on any field....


Cala: Funding

We believe a project like this has to be funded by puclic funds, but our willingness to remain independent and stable advises that public funding be limited. A substantial part of our income comes from agreement with the Department of Cooperation of the Junta de Extremadura, the Autonomous Government. We also get our income doing training courses for teachers in Teacher Training Centres and other institutions, projects with other Autonomous Ministries, from personal contributions of group members,from international projects… and everyday we try to create new formulas to be able to carry......


Our psychopedagogic options:

1. The learning process is linked to the implication process. It has to be anchored to life, to action. It has to come from practice, from experience, from action. It has to develop through action and be aimed at action. 2. This learning process is nor just cognitive. If we separate the cognitive, the operative, the emotional and our values we are losing learning potential. 3. The implication and learning processes entail transformations, both internal and external. We understand the learning process as change, as development, as transformation. Not just cognitive but......


Our methodology

We understand learning as three processes: feeling, thinking and acting. So, we try to provide learning processes that involve the  cognitive, the emotional and the active as a whole. We aim at the emotional implication in conflict, in any given problem, both individually and as a group, in such a way that the need to take decisions and act on them sets in motion processes of investigation, analysis and thought. In general we work on two processes at the same time: facing a conflict in which the group feels involved and the......
