‘METAMORPHOSIS: ART FOR TRANSFORMATION’
It is a unique framework developed by the members of Raíces de Coriander.
It is based on different trends and theories that we have been learning over the years and adding them to our own experience.
It combines Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed, Emotional Intelligence from Salover and Mayer’s model, Paulo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed, and Systemic Pedagogy based on Bert Hellinger.
This methodology aims for the individual and collective transformation and combined empowerment.
It is an experimental approach which makes contexts easier to re-enact, as well as situations or states, through artistic intermediaries and sensoriality, which opens a way to conversation and deliberation.
It comes from a person as the focus, his or her reality and personal rythms.
It has a procedural nature which starts with an individual analysis to get to a collective co-creation: it does not intend to get an anticipated result, but an appropriate one to the group’s own needs and motivations.
Furthermore, it is based on freedom in all its extents, respect as the only limit, and care as the action alongside every element of this methodology. Therefore, these people’s willingness of participation is essential.
We believe in a gender and inclusive perspective, so the work is strengthened with inclusive and heterogeneous groups
who support diversity and mutual enrichment, far beyond segregation for common vulnerability situations
that only causes stigmatisation and exclusion.
Despite this fact, this methodology does not exclude the possibility of working with specific collectives in vulnerable situations.
It acquires a liberating and healing aspect when working with vulnerable collectives,
becoming an effective way against stigmatisation and other prejudices.
The “inclusive space” is a respectful, accessible and adapted space where diversity, in all its forms, is welcomed and accepted with an active participation of all participants, contributing to social development, citizen participation and equal opportunities.
The ‘gender perspective’ allows us to analyze the way in which social systems are created and endure from a certain point of view of sex, gender and sexual orientation.
