changing the village
working with the line
The activity is proposed and the material is provided to the children. They decide what space will be ours… and how that space is defined.
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 village
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.
