It is an interdisciplinary project whose main objective is to promote the self-knowledge, self-care and empowerment of adolescent women, based on a collaborative experience of critical reflection and artistic creation around issues of identity, body and clothing.
People cover our body daily to present it to the world. The clothing we use has various purposes, such as shelter, express, fit or disengage in certain social contexts. Adolescence is a stage in which women wonder who they are and meditate on their future, while they must deal with a series of gender stereotypes and roles that limit their chances of being and dreaming in freedom. The Descosiendo (nos) project will implement conferences with students of reflection on the body and the clothing, and of artistic creation, under a pedagogical format that is de-hierarchical, disruptive and focused on the pleasure to learn, which challenges traditional power relations in the classroom.
For the implementation of the project, the curricular areas of art and culture are used, as well as that of education for work, two areas that historically have been reduced to being spaces of “crafts” and that with the new National Curriculum, take center stage as areas in which life skills must be developed. In order to give sustainability to the project, it seeks to generate capacities in teachers of both curricular areas.
