🤔 A platform to finance cool projects? A democratic innovation foundation? A citizen empowerment initiative? At Fundació Platoniq we are aware that we do so many things (crowdfunding, matchfunding, workshops, ideas laboratories...) that sometimes we even stop to think for a few seconds and ask ourselves "And who are you?"
🤗 Well, today we believe that the answer is in those first three sentences at the beginning and in all those that imply our illusion and will to create tools and communities that empower citizens when it comes to promoting projects with a social impact.
😜 As someone said, "No one seems to realize that some people expend tremendous energy just to be normal." If something similar happens to you, know that we understand you perfectly, that we also believe that it is wonderful to be this versatile and, for our part, we invite you to continue being with us and dedicate all that energy to simply being what we already are. : extraordinary 😝
📬 That is why in this newsletter we bring three very different proposals: with the first we want to change the paradigm of the human interpretation of equine behavior, with the second to fight hate both in networks and in the digital world with messages of empowerment and, with the third , open a crack in the homogeneity of a story that wants to show us as unproblematic. None of this is simple and they are all proposals for social improvement, which is why they deserve all of our space and we hope they will excite you. Thank you very much for continuing to support us and let's meet them!
Horse notes 🐴
🐴 The rock star Pintxo, the feminists Eki and Ispi, the lady Arbela, the immature Txito... are pottokas, an ancient Basque breed of horses, which since 2010 have lived in the public forest in the North of Extremadura (Spain) without any type of handling. human, with the careful observation of Lucy Rees, ethologist and writer.
✋ In his ethology project, he reveals social bonds and behavior patterns within an equine population with a special focus on affiliative or friendly behavior, producing a unique field research journal.
👉 Now these "Notes on Horses" want to become a documentary feature film that reflects the most interesting conclusions made by Lucy so far and that change the paradigm of human interpretation of equine behavior. If you also want this documentary to go ahead, you can support it in goteo.cc/notassobrecaballos.
Eh! Universo 📣
📣 From Hey! They have been contributing a little light on social networks for 5 years with videos to think, reflect and excite. With a very small human team (in recent months Alejandra and Clara have joined. There are already 5 people), they have managed to advance and survive 100% independently, without the need for external investment.
👣 Now the time has come to take a step forward and not only consolidate on social networks as a medium that empowers by sharing information and original content on mental health, feminism, climate change, social rights... but they want to go further : new news website, new podcast, streaming broadcasts, talks... but for this, they need your help.
👉 Support today an independent way to combat hate both online and in the digital world with empowering, educational, and at the same time thoughtful and emotional messages in goteo.cc/ehuniverso!
Mendikotxe Kalea 🎬
🎬 “Mendikotxe Kalea” is a short film made as Final Degree Project (TFG) being one of the proposals selected last year 2022 by the ESCAC (School of Cinema and Audiovisuals of Catalonia).
🏡 The project deals with the conflict of the present in Euskadi, the post-terrorist conflict, represented through a family conflict between father and son, whose story transcends the framework of the private, the personal, and goes on to question the imposed silence on which the recent history of Euskadi has been built: the pact of oblivion, the family histories built on what cannot be talked about. The open wound of the present of the Basque people, a wound still to be closed.
👉 If you also think it is necessary to question the present of the Basque people as a problematic space, thus opening a crack in the homogeneity of history, you can be a partner in this project at goteo.cc/mendikotxekalea.
