In a tarot reading about the past and the present of the CCCB, the Magician and the High Priestess have come up. According to the Tarot of Marseilles, both cards correspond to the heavenly parents of the hero: parents of a place that functioned as a hospice until the end of the 1950s. The stones that make up the walls of the CCCB embody the pain and suffering of their history as an orphanage, as witnessed by those who claim to have seen ghosts in their darker corners.

In this encounter, we will meet with Eleodora Nesua – artistic tarot reader who has worked with the tarot for a long time – in a participatory reading that will connect the visible with the invisible and create a bridge to another place that currently houses orphans at the far end of the old town, the Hortet del Forat de la Vergonya, which will be our meeting place in March for the second part of the activity. This vegetable garden is used and cared for by local families, and by recently-arrived Moroccan teenagers who survive in precarious conditions.

Blue protects white from innocence. Blue drags black with it. Blue is darkness made visible.
