Symbology of Interculturalism. Urban Performance.

Joyce E. Sanchez

Constructing knowledge in the public space.

Symbology of Interculturalism is a performance that takes place in the city of Guayaquil in an attempt to construct knowledge together with its people.

The performance is supported by Intercultural Cardboard Press, Community Art Practices Lab with the intention  to conduct interdisciplinary research upon interculturalism as  a research topic.

The research strives to answer questions: How people in Guayaquil learn about interculturality? Is it possible to assimilate  through images related concepts to interculturalism?

The research answers these questions in the text Ethnology of an Urban Pedagogy of Interdisciplinary Art. Promoting a Social Didactic in the city.

The research tries to make visible the connections between art and social pedagogy.

In order to achieve our research goals we have engaged our  work to  ethnography and visual methodologies.  And definitely taking  art to an interdisciplinary field engaging its practices to social processes, cultural and artistic management.
