'Creators IN RESIDENCE' aims to create links between art and education through ongoing dialogue among students, teachers and artists. This singular project allows students and teachers to actively witness the conception and production of an artwork, and to follow the methodologies of the resident artists up close. By drawing on the actual processes of contemporary creation, the project encourages artistic experimentation and educational innovation, as well as generating new models for learning in participatory contexts.

By taking part in the project, MACBA contributes tools for exploring artistic heritage and sets up links between the works in the permanent collection and classroom experiences, through specific tours conceived by the artists in conjunction with the Museum's Education Department.

By presenting a story of a victim of violence in Colombia, I am calling on the memory of pain which all human beings have, here or anywhere else in the world.
