Success among the educational community

The strong didactic component of the exhibition has been reflected in the successful call among the educational and training community. Of the total number of visitors, 5,800 were attended by the Educational Area, from where the Sorigué Foundation promotes learning in art with proposals for all educational stages.

During the 2022-23 academic year and the first quarter of 2023-24, the Educational Area has promoted a wide program of dynamic visits that invite students to observe, debate and reflect on the themes of the Juan Zamora's work, like the study of life from science and from art.

This student body has also included people who follow non-formal training, particularly affecting adult training groups and vulnerable groups with limited access to culture.

The organization has also offered guided tours to the general public and dynamic tours aimed at families, with the aim of getting closer to the artist's reflection on natural ecosystems through a largely introspective tour of his work.

The Sorigué Foundation, which aims to promote reflection through contemporary art, opted for a unique exhibition project that has addressed issues related to environmental and social sustainability, through different means such as drawing, installation and the video

An inclusive proposal

The Sorigué Foundation has been working for some time to guarantee inclusive artistic proposals. For this reason, it collaborates with multiple entities in the province of Lleida in the joint organization of specific activities aimed at its users.

Since 2023, the Sorigué Foundation has been part of Apropa Cultura, a program that facilitates access to culture for people in vulnerable situations with the aim of continuing to bring art closer to all groups. In this way, the foundation has been able to offer users of the program the possibility of visiting the exhibition on Juan Zamora both freely and with a guide.
