In early August, held elcasc, a sociocultural renewal project set in Villena, Spain. The purpose of the event was the re-activation of the urban and social fabric of the historic center of Villena through small architectural, artistic and cultural interventions that draw on and celebrate the city’s local heritage and socio-cultural patterns. Our workshop aimed mural intervention in one of the walls of the major square by gluing technique, and other performances in some historic center abandoned homes.
In conjunction with the workshop students we tried to convey the ideas that have been collected during the early days of exploration and research of the area and its inhabitants through the image and wall interventions.
In the first case uninhabited and bricked up houses in the historic center. In the other case the dividing wall of a site where once stood the clock tower that still is remembered by their inhabitants more than 120 years after its disappearance.
