WHY CRÓNICA21?

Crónica21 is a free, on-line, multidisciplinary archive of documentary stories and analysis about the deepening economic, political and social crisis in Spain.
Inspired by the Farm Security Administration initiative, part of US President Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal of the 1930s, it is driven by the conviction that in order to act for change, it is crucial to be well informed.

Journalism and various forms of vibrant cultural and artistic expression not only frame reality, but can enable people to empathize with others and promote positive change. While there is much existing material addressing the current situation in Spain, it often does not reach the broad public and too frequently important stories go unread and unseen by a wide audience.

Our objective is to bring these existing stories and projects - and new ones - together into one central repository that can be easily accessed by everyone. By including photography, video, illustration, text, audio and web, we hope to provide enough material for analysis and interpretation of the current situation, so we can build a picture of the present and address the fundamental question: where can we go from here?

Crónica21 is an archive built in the common interest, and designed to continually feed new work from journalists and storytellers to the general public – employed, unemployed, retired, students and teachers, artists, entrepreneurs and administrators... We take on the task of keeping it current thanks to the generous support of people like you, who believe in the importance of being informed and engaged.

Crónica21 launches with more than 100 projects already archived. These include projects from all over Spain by photographers like Gianfranco Tripodo, Carlos Spottorno, Elisenda Pons and Julián Barón. Songs like 30 metros by Chico Ocaña, Marca España by Tejero, or No Fear by At Versaris. Films like €spanish Dr€am by Guillermo Cruz and Santiago Cirugéda and Manos Arriba, esto es un contrato by Javier Gascón. Links to books and also drawings by illustrators like Enrique Flores and Manel Fontdevila. It also highlights journalists and writers like Juan Luis Sánchez of eldiario.es, and Andreu Missé of Alternativas Económicas.

We have 3 long-term objectives:

  1. To research and upload new projects continually. We will send out a monthly Newsletter informing subscribers of what’s new in the archive, and provide updates and engage the public in dialogue through our social network of twitter (@cronica21), Facebook and Instagram (Cronica21)

  2. To promote the production of new, in-depth work addressing not just the causes and consequences of the crisis, but also the solutions being sought by Spaniards to their current situation.

  3. To explore creative and innovative ways to distribute material from Crónica21’s archive to help stimulate public discourse and motivate for change. We aim to bring the stories to the public through, among other methods, theatrical and musical performances, poetry readings, public installations, film, lectures, exhibitions and publications.

WHAT WILL YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS BE USED FOR?

The money raised through this crowdfunding campaign will cover the costs of building the digital archive and maintaining it on-line, setting up space and equipment, and expanding the archive and the outreach to reach a broader public.
(It also includes the cost of the funding campaign including postage, tax, paypal and bank surcharges, and the 5% fee for Verkami)

SCHEDULE

We launch the archive with more than 100 projects, on May 5, 2014. From that date on, we will upload between 2 – 6 new projects every two weeks, informing the public through our monthly newsletter and our social network. Also, immediately, we will start building up our off-line events and will keep the public informed about them. We now are organizing the following events:

  • May 8, 2014. Presentation of the Crónica21 archive at the Poble Sec neighborhood Cooperative, La Base. http://www.labase.info/

  • May 19 – July 31, 2014. Crónica21 will present a multimedia piece in a public evening projection, as part of the festival DOCfield 14 in Barcelona. http://www.docfieldbarcelona.org/

  • May 25 - July 25, 2014. Crónica21 shows Grito, camino hacia Í-TACA a large scale photography exhibition, that takes place on the streets and round-a-bouts of varios towns in the Baix Empordá, in Catalunya (Parlabá, Torroella, Palafrugell, La Bisbal, La Pera...) Part of the festival Í-TACA http://www.itacacultura.cat/

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to learn about more events as they are scheduled.

All of the rewards, to be given in exchange for donations, will be sent within two weeks of successfully ending the Verkami crowdfunding campaign.

    Hola Humberto. Cualquier ayuda con la difusion del proyecto es bienvenida. Mandando la información sobre el archivo y la campaña de Verkami a todos tu contactos seria un gran ayuda. Creo que sera mas efectivo aun si explicas a tus contactos lo que piensas tu del proyecto y porque tu has decidido apoyarlo..... Esto es un proyecto realmente hecho por el bien comun y esperamos que la gente lo ve asi y se animan participar. Muchas gracias por tu nota, Jessica

    Hola Irene Me alegro que te gusta CR21! En respuesta a tu pregunta....la sostenibilidad es lo mas fundamental desde luego. La idea es mantenerlo a traves de una combinacion de suvencion y "donaciones". El reto sera buscar la formula perfecta y el buen equilibrio. Es muy importante para nosotros que nos mentenemos independientes o sea que seremos riguorosos al momento de elegir donde y a traves de quien solicitamos apoyo. Tenemos Magnum Foundation como patrocinador fiscal en los Estados Unidos. MF es una entidad sin ánimo de lucro, clasificada como una organización benéfica pública bajo la sección 501 (c) (3) del Código de Rentas Internas, y las donaciones de los contribuyentes estadounidenses pueden ser deducibles en la medida permitida por la ley. En españa y mas bien Europa, somo una asociacion registrado que nos permite acpetar suvenciones tambien.
    Esperamos que nuestra experiencia de los ultimos 10 años manteniendo Al-liquindoi a flote a base de suvenciones, becas etc. ayuda guiarnos para hacer que Cronica21 se mantiene. Creemos que si. Un saludo Jessica

#12 / ¡Lo hemos conseguido! - We did it!


© Edu Bayer
¡Lo hemos conseguido! A 3 días del término de la campaña de crowdfunding hemos llegado al objetivo. Y eso ha sido gracias a todos vosotros!

Queremos daros las gracias a todos, a los que creyeron desde el primer día en Crónica21, a los autores que colaboran con sus obras, a los mecenas que han aportado su granito de arena muy necesaria, y por supuesto a todos los que habéis difundido el proyecto. Entre todos hemos hecho que Crónica21 siga siendo posible. Sin vuestros apoyos, sin vuestras aportaciones, habría sido imposible llegar hasta aquí.

Aún nos quedan 3 días de campaña y muchas recompensas todavía por ofrecer. Hemos llegado al primer objetivo pero quedan varios días donde cada céntimo cuenta. Seguir recaudando dinero nos permitirá seguir afianzar el proyecto y su sostenibilidad.

Gracias por la confianza depositada en el proyecto.

We did it! Thanks to all of you we've reached our crowdfunding goal with still 3 days to go!

#07 / Entrevista con Gonzalo Höhr en VICE España.


© Enric Catalá
" ¿Os habéis parado a pensar que esta crisis comenzó nada menos que en el 2008? Llevamos ya 6 años de crisis y por mucho que el gobierno diga que somos el asombro del mundo, a día de hoy seguimos teniendo casi 6 millones de parados, un 25,3% de la población en edad de currar no tiene trabajo y entre los jóvenes nos vamos a un deprimente 53,9%.

Ante eso, es normal que haya revueltas sociales y problemas de todo tipo. Incluso sorprende que no haya más. Todos estos dramas de cada día están viéndose reflejados desde hace tiempo en muchos campos artísticos y de análisis de la sociedad. Quizá cuando todo esto haya terminado (si es que no nos vamos antes todos a la mierda), nos daremos cuenta de que la crisis económica ha creado una especie de cuerpo artístico y de pensamiento que habrá captado el espíritu de esta época por la que nos ha tocado pasar. De esta época tan jodida para tantos..."

Juan Villalba entrevista Gonzalo en VICE España.

#06 / Crónica21 colabora con el festival de "I-TACA cultura y acció al Baix Empordá"

Estamos muy contentos de colaborar con este festival!!! Con una exposición titulada “Grito, camino hacia Í-TACA” de Edu Bayer, José Colon y Olmo Calvo. Una selección de fotos en grande en las calles (y rotondas) de los pueblos de la Baix Empordá de Catalunya!!! Los pueblos son La Pera (justo en la entrada por la Carretera C66), Parlabá, Parafugell, Torroella y La Bisbal.....

http://www.itacacultura.cat/exposicions/

"Si no hay lucha, no hay progreso. Los que profesan estar a favor de la libertad, y sin embargo, deprecian la agitación, son hombres que quieren cosechar sin arar la tierra. Quieren la lluvia sin truenos y relámpagos. Quieren el océano sin el imponente bramido de sus aguas.” - Frederick Douglass, 1857, ex-esclavo norteamericano y abolicionista.
