erro(re)tik 2021. Mintegia = erro(re)tik 2021. Seminario = erro(re)tik 2021. Seminar
A seminar which is rerouted (from error) and radical (at its root)
Rerouted, because it is a space which seeks to generate learning from error. The focus is on open ways of working that we did not expect, and to distance ourselves from seeing educational practices as totalitarian, absolute and impenetrable. From these other places, it is easier to highlight norms: those things which are not seen but which discipline us with all their violence.
Radical, because the seminar wants to generate changes from the roots; changes which could affect not only the programmes but the structures in the cultural institution and which enable a radical approach to notions like care, community and participation. Changes that force us out of our comfort zones to occupy/make visible/highlight other places: those which are unfriendly, non-central, and those which, in the context of norms, do not want to materialise. Those truly able to resist.
erro(re)tik is a long-range reflection that rethinks terms such as diversity, care, community and inclusion. It comprises three lines of work: a mediation and community process looking at mental health, care and diversity; a series of training sessions that affect Tabakalera’s team, programmes and ways of working; and two public programmes such as this one presented here, held between 12th and 15th May 2021.
