ALDEA MORET
An old mining neighbourhood in Caceres which…

underwent considerable social degradation for years due to the coexistence of various problems: diversity, drug dealing and consumption, institutional neglect of a very degraded building…

Objectives
Aldea Doc responded to a twofold need of Aldea Moret.

On the one hand, mapping transition areas where the transitoriness and the precariousness of the social condition coexist with illegal practices and, on the other hand, promoting citizen participation and involvement in the restructuring process of the area.

HOW IT IS CARRIED OUT
Through an express workshop…

residents in the neighbourhood were trained on documentary techniques and the use of mobile phones as recording devices with which they recorded their environment on successive days. This workshop was also used to structure the groups and guidelines to organize the work.

RESULTS
Aldea Doc is a...

participatory action documentary of a pluralistic nature which reflects on the past, the present and the future of Aldea Moret.

Aldea Doc not only carries out a mapping of the neighbourhood, but it also provides internal views and opinions which help the spectator understand the reason for the current situation of conflict in Aldea Moret and it even proposes possible solutions.

Aldea Doc intends to make the residents of Aldea Moret part of the project and have a leading role.
