The PECA project was designed during the school year 1995-96 by the school Pau Vila, an institution that works within the Project "Filosofia 6-18" (this is how it is known the project "Philosophy for Children" in Catalonia).

"Filosofia 6-18 is coordinated by the Institut per la Recerca i l'Ensenyament de la Filosofia (IREF), which is associated to the International Forum SOPHIA that promotes the work of philosophy, esthetics and citizenship, among schools and other institutions, not as studies in themselves but as a development of a large set of strategies of thinking through dialogue and the questioning about aspects of daily life.

All together were piloting a new approach to philosophy and art with children of the primary level, using philosophic dialogue and esthetics to stimulate the artistic sense and the creativity processes and also using contemporary art as a stimulus for philosophic reflection. Within PECA we pretended to join and work in deep some lines that are already open in the schools: philosophy, esthetics and valoration of the construction and diversity of Europe. Some of the main aims of the project were the reflection and the search of the sense of contemporary artworks, and the share of the newest art from the newest eyes to learn to participate together, to increase the own creativity and to facilitate the exchange of productions with their partners from the other European schools.

Each country developed its own methods to achive the principal objectives of PECA without forgetting the common work proposals and the different aspects that we have proposed to study carefully together. The four member schools shared the results of the experience with the goal of elaborating some of the common conclusions both in methodology and in standards of work and materials, in order to develop the esthetic sense and improve some thinking strategies through the formulation of philosophic judgements.

  • Es pot fer filosofia a l'escola? 
  • Poden els infants, amb els seus ulls nous, comprendre l'art més nou? 
  • Es pot educar la sensibilitat artística?  
  • A quina edat es comença a formar un pensament estètic propi? 
  • Es pot construir Europa sense tenir present la dimensió estètica? 

Aquí teniu algunes activitats que us poden donar resposta a aquestes preguntes. També podeu consultar les pàgines d'introducció al Projecte PECA i de la metodologia de treball.


Escultura i pensament (CEIP Pau Vila d'Esparreguera)


Com es fa una escultura? Quina ha de ser la funció d'una escultura que s'instal·la al pati de l'escola? Els alumnes de 5è del CEIP Pau Vila d'Esparreguera han viscut l'experiència de pensar i crear una escultura col·lectiva fins aconseguir un resultat final sorprenent.
