Case studies

Some of the highlights of Humane's workshops worldwide


A national milestone in Chile

In collaboration with the UNESCO, the Ministries of Culture and Education of the Government of Chile.  

During SEA2018 we invited children and teens, together with their teachers, to express their diversity through the “Flesh Color?" workshop. We worked with 1000 schools throughout the country, giving us the chance to reach more than 50 thousand students in just a week. Furthermore, the public space was taken over by a "flood" of self-portraits exhibited at different corners of chilean cities, spreading the project’s impact even more.

After filling a feedback form, every teacher was able to download a certificate of participation from Unesco.

Empowering teens at Czech Republic

In collaboration with Gymnázium BMA highschool

In a main workshop we trained 43 teens from Gymnázium BMA  to be Humanae multipliers with the project Srdcem, ne očima (Heart, not eyes). They made workshops in 15 schools around the Moravian-Silesian region in the Czech Republic. In three months, Humanae got to 75 czech classrooms, reaching almost 2000 students between 6 and 12 years old, showing us the importance of empowering our youth to be change makers. This project was double winner of the National Prize for Young Volunteers, Gratias Tibi at  the Secondary School category and the main Czech Television Award.

Teachers of the future at the University in Madrid

In collaboration with ESCUNI -  University College of Teacher Education 

More than 500 students of ESCUNI’s, experimented with Humanae’s workshop as a tool in their classes. We prepare future teachers to make learning come alive through empathy for all their future students. After the workshops at the University, ESCUNI’S future teachers had the opportunity to practice in different primary and secondary public schools in Madrid.

“Flesh Color?" workshop at TED 2018

In collaboration with TED

Artist and former TED speaker Angélica Dass invites you back to your childhood, to the moment when you learned about the connection between race and the color of your skin: yellow, white, black, brown and red. Using paints, simple materials and concepts from Dass's Humanae Project, you'll recreate your own skin color and produce a self-portrait to match how you see yourself. No art experience necessary!"


Multipliers in Málaga, Algeciras and Granada

In collaboration with NGO Fundación Márgenes y Vínculos

Thanks to the NGO Fundación Márgenes y Vínculos’ network, we carried out three workshops in the cities of Málaga, Algeciras and Granada with a multiplying objective, encouraging all attendees to develop the workshop later on in their own educational spaces, with their students. There was a total of 137 attendees, raging from educators, social workers and tutors, that got to replicate Humanae’s impact throughout the region of Andalucía.

Small Primary School, Elche, Spain

In collaboration with CEIP Ferrández Cruz

Elementary and primary schools are the places where HumanaeED was born. At CEIP Ferrández Cruz Middle School was one of the first schools we visited. We had the chance to work with 16 teachers and 257 children between 3 and 12 years old, painting, playing and exchanging thoughts about their diverse flesh colors.

Intergenerational experience in Madrid

in collaboration with Matadero Madrid and pedagogia Invisibles.

Parents, tutors, educators and children were part of our participatory-educational game at the Matadero Madrid Contemporary Creation Center, deactivating the colors associated with race: white, black, red and yellow, always seeking to compose a creative and plastic structure that would allow them to discover the real color of each participant. In this way the codes around the so-called "flesh color" pencil are questioned. A final piece was created, composed by 50 portraits of the Humanae series, which were complemented with the self-portraits made by the participants, during the development of the workshops. Altogether, 100 reinterpretations of the original work were exhibited.

Deaf students in Santiago de Chile

In collaboration with the Temporary Lobe Art Laboratory

In this project we used a experimental platform that aims to build and disseminate artistic and educational proposals that incorporate Deaf and hearing people into their work. The workshop counted with the participation of 18 students and 6 professors / interpreters. The goal was to create exactly the same experience for deaf students using the same methodology that applies to hearing students.
