VI CampusGuía objectives Cultural Association RED ESPACIOGUÍA announces the VI CampusGuÍa 2011, an event of creative experimentation applied to the territory, which has been held annually in Gran Canaria since 2006. Under the title “CUADERNOS A LA DERIVA - DRIFTING NOTEBOOKS”, 60 creative residences are offered to participate in a self-organized process centered on TRAVELLING, OCUPATION, OBSERVATION, RECOGNIZING and RE-Significance of the city. An urban exploration as a conscious tourist, with the collective purpose of: (1) Producing an alternative guide to LPGC. (2) Experiencing from direct confrontation (person -creativitycity), a model of ACTIVE-CULTURAL TOURISM 'under construction'. (3) Participating in a COURSE-DEBATE-PRACTICE about INDEPENDENT CULTURE, CREATIVE COMMUNITY and CITY MAKING . (4) Co-creating and producing ARTISTIC CONTENT related to the event's meaning and context.

VI CampusGuĂ­a conceptual framework and working lines The collective construction of an ALTERNATIVE GUIDE to LPGC work involves a thorough re-mapped on a human scale, from direct and immediate experience, generating a new tool for exploration and territorial reflection. This event includes activities of conceptual design, urban drift, fieldwork, data collection and archive organization. Editorial design, publication and dissemination of the guide will be undertaken in subsequent phases. Within the context of re-design of the tourism industry, especially in the Canary Islands, the concept of ACTIVE-CULTURAL TOURISM, which is not the same as cultural tourism consumption, explores dynamics of CULTURAL CO-CREATION and the value associated with such practices. This event proposes methodologies and tools for self-observation of the tourist experience itself, from a critical and proactive perspective, where each participant is both subject and object in the investigation of a potential model. In the field of research and production of a territorial, participative and collaborative culture, the INDEPENDENT CULTURAL MICRO-STRUCTURES are showing a prominent role. In line with the emerging network of independent cultural spaces REDECI, we search the spirit of the INTERNATIONAL MEETING, to strengthen links from shared practice and with the intention of becoming an initiative that roams yearly through different cities. From a SYSTEMIC VIEW OF THE CITY, we understand the concept of CREATIVE COMMUNITY as a possible strategy to stimulate non-linear and SELF-ORGANIZING CREATIVE ENVIRONMENTS. Where utopias and real entrepreneurship can go hand by hand. This initiative searchs for participatory micro-dynamics of analysis, identification, visualization and strengthening of the creative potential in LPGC, through interaction with diverse agents, spaces, groups and local citizens.
