THE La Noria Social Innovation Centre in Vélez-Málaga, Spain, hosted a thought-proving workshop where the theme of ‘art as a tool for social transformation’ was explored.
Taking place on Wednesday, December 4, residents were invited to join a seminar aimed at entrepreneurs in the community through the promotion of social innovation. Led by Marina Reina, a photographer who has extensive experience in cultural affairs, the event examined how photography can be viewed as a means of transformation, enrichment and personal exchange.
The workshop forms part of a series of workshops organised by the La Noria centre in collaboration with the city council and funded by La Caixa, to support innovation and social entrepreneurship in Vélez-Málaga.
In a commitment to the United Nations 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) the events aim to develop solutions to today’s social, cultural and environmental issues to achieve a more sustainable way of life.
Natacha Rivas, the Deputy of La Noria, explained that through the workshops, “entrepreneurs and social groups will be given tools to apply effective solutions on social issues such as equality or sustainability” based on commitment and action.
