Cooperativism —a social movement that, starting in the 19th century, proposed a management model based on the principles of solidarity, responsibility, democracy, effort, and equality— is the starting point for this interdisciplinary project that intends to analyse and socialise, through art, the influence that Basque cooperativism has had on the organisation of work, the economy, and education in the last few decades. Agents of diverse backgrounds have joined up to construct an artistic and vital experience that will allow citizens to understand the essence of cooperativism through emotions and action. Starting from a reflective process on approaching knowledge, the basic values of cooperativism will be addressed, and later awareness will be raised among the school community, involving it in the creation of a stage performance on the topic which will allow children to explore these ideas through acting.
