The office of pastor is constantly shown and perceived by us as something nostalgic, closed to disappear, or directly belonging to the past. Being shepherd is never seen as a profession with a future, which may be attractive to young people.
However, in the recent years we have witnessed the birth of a new generation of young shepherds and farmers, working according to new social paradigms (food sovereignty, ecologic production...). It is a phenomenon currently hatching world-wide, but still unnoticed by the majority of society.
School of Shepherds is a long-term project presenting an approach to this livestock renewal, especially from the experience of the School of Shepherds of Catalonia, one of the pioneer experience in the recovery and revitalization of the livestock sector, that has arrived in March 2018 to its tenth edition. The objective of this project is to break visual clichés and provide a positive look about the current rural world regeneration. A subjective dialogue is set between the rigid codes of a traditional world and the fresh air filtered from the new pastor’s generation.
