The first participatory workshops of the “Lands of Butterflies” project have been launched in Asturias and Northern Iceland. Since October 2022 the Ecomuseum La Ponte and Landsbyggdin Lifi, Fel I Landvor are engaging women from Santo Adriano (Spain) and Kópasker (Iceland) to participate in local meetings where they can share their memories of their respective villages.
Based on the common guidelines defined during the coordination meeting in Villanueva de Santo Adriano (September 2022), both organisations are creating safe spaces to engage women of all ages. These meetings are the starting point to generate favourable conditions for the transmission of women’s memory and intangible heritage between generations.
These workshops will continue on a monthly basis until the end of spring. The project partners will then host a group of French artists ToNNe for artistic residencies in which they will accompany the local populations in the interpretation and dissemination of these memories through creativity.
The memories collected in both villages will also be published in a monograph that will be available in early 2024.
