In the frame of the city strategic project Manresa 2022, the city council has launched the 'Anima l'ànima' initiative to collect evidence of confinement among citizens.

Faced with a situation of exceptional confinement that leads us, once again, to an inevitable personal transformation of each individual and, also, of the whole society, Manresa 2022 invites to reflect on it and transform it into writing and creativity.

This materializes in encouraging anyone who wishes to testify in person and in writing of personal experiences of confinement and let them be part of an archive for collective posterity, for the memory of our children and our grandchildren.

In this way, this anomalous situation and the experience of each one will become literature and collective memory of the moment of change that we have had to live. 

Writings on how everyone is experiencing this confinement can be sent to the email address manresa2022@gmail.com and will be part of this special archive for the city of tomorrow. Testimonials can be sent signed or, if someone prefers so, they can also be anonymous. In both cases, their receipt involves the application of the law of protection of personal data.
