Notes for the Third International Congress of Arts and Diversity of the Region of Murcia, Spain.

De-identification, vulnerability, architecture and habitability.



The International Congress of Arts and Diversity of the Region of Murcia, Spain, is held every year and brings together professionals from the creative industry and social action groups to provide spaces for critical thinking, artistic practice and the transfer of practices, where culture contributes to the improvement and transformation of societies by addressing diversity management. In previous editions, the first module was dedicated to cultural entrepreneurship and social innovation in the creative industry. In the edition planned for 2021 it seeks to focus on the reactivation of local and community development in a context of health, economic and social crisis.

It will analyze the contribution to the recovery of the productive sector through the implementation of digital creativity in local commerce, and how the so-called creative or “orange” economy acts positively in small and medium-sized companies that are committed to the social challenges of the territories where they are active, and mediation of their impact on their context.

The Congress will engage with the El Chopo University Museum, which will present artistic proposals where critical thinking and artistic practice meet to address social problems and needs.

Two important aspects to take into account in the design of the program are:


The body as a tool for change, capable of providing testimony and of showing that being something is not uniformity, but in any case bodily multiplicities in potential, in resistance and in permanent transformation and the violence that is inescapably part of our daily experience in our society, like any society of classes where power relations are established between those who exercise domination and those who suffer it, where oppression, authoritarianism, discrimination and exclusion appear.


Violence suffered by those people who in the exercise of their freedom decide to travel in spaces, places and architectures of non-normative identity construction to be living, vulnerable bodies, it will be precisely these fragilities, which are typically treated as heroic acts of courage and vulnerability and as the inevitable opportunity for change in the processes of de-identification in the conceptual framework of the proposals for the program.


Participating: Juan Nicolás Martínez (Spain) and Gabriel Yépez (Mexico)
