changing the space

working with the line

Children become thinkers of the city for a few days, appropriating their spaces, making them own. They devise and research their own playgrounds, modify them, live them and enjoy them.

It is intended that children act as a vanguard for the recovery of the territory for the citizenry. As the geographer and social theorist David Harvey states, it is necessary for citizens to appropriate urban public spaces through political action to turn them into common spaces. Those are common goods, which we look forward children to recognize as their own from different points of view: from history, their uses, their evolution and their transformations.

Color your city

The city/town we are working in has become a playground, an experimental laboratory in which children and teenagers can act from a new point of view.
