CODIFICAT is a project that arises from the intersection between dance, immigration and new technologies. Granted by l'Obra Social Fundació La Caixa and framed in the cultural projects with social impact, also counts with the collaboration of the Association TotRaval and the Primary School of Drassanes, between other entities.
With the intention of empowering the multi-ethnic character of the Raval neighbourhood, and providing visibility to the different cultures that inhabit its streets, the participants of the project have created small performances, of music and/or dance, that reflect the idiosyncrasy of the culture of which they belong. These small artistic samples, recorded in different public spaces of the Raval, are embedded in QR codes (a two-dimensional bar code system to store information in) hanged "in situ" that can be scanned with any Smartphone, enabling the spectator to enjoy the video that has been recorded in that location.
In another hand, the different videos are geolocated in a Google Maps of the Raval neighbourhood in the website of the project, Codificat.com, allowing the user to do an emotional trip through our website for the different ethnic patterns that compound a neighbourhood as eclectic as Raval.
