The condition for becoming a BiQVER is to share your travel or field notebooks with the BiQVI either digitally (scanning the notebook) or physically, transferring them to the BiQVI documentary collection.
First day Traveler’s Notebooks 1.1
Last Saturday, June 18, we organized the first day of Traveler’s Notebooks 1.1, at the Museu Etnològic i de Cultures del Món, and included the participation of the renowned scientific illustrator Carles Puche, who offered a keynote talk on his field notes and shared techniques, curiosities and tricks with all attendees.
He also opened up his travel notebooks from Austria, Germany, Morocco, Yellowstone and the Galapagos Islands, making us enjoy his experiences, while he talked with Jordi Serrallonga, naturalist, anthropologist, expedition guide and curator of the exhibition El viatge il·lustrat Exhibition at the Museu Etnològic i de Cultures del Món, on Montcada, 12 street.
The challenge: Traveler’s notebook
During the day, we pose a challenge to all attendees: create your own travel notebook. It is about making a chronicle of this summer 2022, be it on a long or short trip, or simply the experiences lived during the summer.
To encourage and help to do the challenge, Sakura Pigma Micron notebooks and markers were distributed among the attendees, inside a very cool backpack bag.
And a reunion was called on September 17 to share their notebooks, with the possibility of presenting them in public and recording a couple of questions that will form part of a video produced by the Museu Etnològic I de Cultures del Món itself. As well as enjoying an excellent talk with Lapin, urban sketcher, notebook and mobile illustrator.
