Francoism and education 2020

Taking the concept of urban art as a vehicle for transmitting memory and as a reflection tool for social transformation, this collaborative project integrates the historical research on Francoism in Vic driven by the Educational Research Group of the University of Vic with the support of Fundació Puig Porret. Its purpose is to reveal the appropriations, propaganda, and repression of Franco’s regime through social education. The concepts developed during the research project will be captured in a wall painting with the aim to arouse public awareness and reflection about Spains’ recent past.
