    PUNTO Y RAYA FESTIVAL    FOURTH FESTIVAL EDITION (JUNIOR format)

    This extension of the Punto y Raya Festival followed the same spirit and featureed the same activities as the “senior” editions. The only difference was that the contents were MADE BY KIDS aged 5 through 12.

    The event took place on November 10th & 11th 2012 at the CCCB (Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona), where children and family audiences created new contents, playfully explored mathematical and scientific concepts, expressed their creativity in an interdisciplinary manner, and put to the test their abstraction abilities, discovering how the dots and the lines lie at the core of everyday life.

    About 50 films and 460 photographs from 23 countries were submitted to our international call, and thanks to the collaboration of various instituions throughout the year, children have created and prepared the other contents for the event, including interactive installations, live music concerts, dance pieces, and live audiovisual sets.

    GUEST SCREENINGS

    Specially curated for family audiences by MAD, creators of the festival, these sections explore the intrinsic relationship between sound and imagery, compiling various and curious techniques for the easy creation of abstract films. There is also a section running on a loop curated by the Arxiu Xcèntric for this occasion.

    GUEST PYRFORMANCES

    As the result of the workshops carried out during the 2012 Academy Programme at many partnered institutions, or just hours before the show at the CCCB, these LIVE performances made by KIDS explore the creative possibilities of Dots and Lines in various spheres such as Dance, Music and Real-time Audiovisual Art (Live Cinema).

    ACADEMY FOR STUDENTS

    Professionals from different areas (designers, composers, biochemists, mathematicians, visualists, programmers...) explained to us how the Dots and the Lines get together in their respective disciplines. To conclude, together we experimented, carried out actions, and created collective works in various formats applying what we've learned during the presentations.

    INSTALLATIONS

    Playful explorations of the Dot and the Line from different approaches: recycled technologies, architecture and design, photograhy, sports and recreation, sustainibility and environmental studies... Dinamised by our partner groups all the day through.
