L’Illa de Campclar
by Casal l’Amic team
Tarragona, january 2013
Board game 48x48cm, dice, playing cards, carrying bag.
Illa de Campclar is a game which was played by the eldest children in the Fundació Casal l’Amic’s open centre project.
The game consisted of carrying out a careful observation on the district in which they live. The aim was to observe the district from the individual view of each of the children, thereby forgetting the perceptions that they may have as a result of relationships with other people, institutions, entities, and so on, which are close to them (ie family, friends, school, and even the Fundació Casal l’Amic itself.)
This observation involved finding all of the aspects of their neighbourhood that they considered to be beautiful, including spaces, objects, and customs. The aim was to create an idea of the district of Campclar as seen by the people.
