In A Vila do Maña’s workshops the game is the fundamental tool. It is created a playful environment in which children are provided with materials or objects that can be used in many ways, from each one’s motivation. Everyone has to figure out what they want to do, how to do it and how to keep playing.



The aim is to have some freedom so that everyone finds out how to play: sometimes starting from an established order to figure out what to do with it; working with prepared materials as a game trigger, elements that are able to modify spaces; etc.
