cartell 2020 SOS HUMANITYAfter the third edition of COLLECTIVE SIGNATURES on Formentera, the independent curator Francesca Carol Rolla presents, in conjunction with the cultural association Sa Casa, a new collaborative project, #FREEDOM A NEW HUMAN MANIFESTO. COLLECTIVE SIGNATURES marries with ONE-MAN—THE LIBERATION PROJECT by African-American activist Preach R Sun, while consolidating the collaboration with Manolo Oya of Trampolí Mecànic; with the support from the Consell Insular de Formentera and Ràdio Illa Formentera.

#FREEDOM A NEW HUMAN MANIFESTO takes on a direction marked by cultural and social activism, as immediate response to the urgency of raising awareness regarding all forms of individual and systemic oppression, inequality and injustice. The project takes on the challenge of putting art at the service of society, carrying out social activities oriented towards the search for a better humanity.

#FREEDOM THE NEW HUMAN MANIFESTO is divided into four stations that take place from December 2020 to February 2021 on the island of Formentera (ES).

The first station, serving as both prelude and finale to the subsequent second station, consists of the publication of an SOS, inviting the community of Formentera and the international public to openly share thoughts, considerations, experiences, frustrations and fears related to the current crisis of humanity. These testimonies will essentially culminate in the second station via the presentation of a radio marathon at Ràdio Illa Formentera 107.9 FM of readings, lectures and gatherings, on 30 January 2021. The second station is a three-day programme of conferences and round table discussions with local and international guests, to address and shed light on issues of injustice and oppression as they exist on the island of Formentera. This station will take place 21-23 January. The third station is based on an immersive research workshop and performative actions, tutored by Francesca Carol Rolla and Preach R Sun, on 12-14 February (first part) and 19-21 February 2021 (second part). The fourth and last station consists of the public presentation of the results of the work, through individual and collective performative proposals, in the public space of Formentera, 26-28 February 2021.

Through new technologies, social networks, and the virtual participation of international guests, the project launches its SOS from the island of Formentera, to expand and communicate beyond its borders, to the national and international audience.

The focus of #FREEDOM A NEW HUMAN MANIFESTO is directed towards the human capacity to develop new possibilities of language and communication, to activate a process of self-emancipation, and engage in a collective commitment towards freedom and liberation.

All activities are free.

The project respects all the security measures for the prevention against the spread of Covid-19, and complies with the regulations established in this regard.
