The aim of ‘A Vila da Mañá’ is to change the model of town or city, we believe that another one can be possible. This is achieved through the protagonist participation of local children and adolescents who, by working with fundamental concepts through tactical urban planning actions, become active citizens capable of transforming their spaces.

In this case it works with perception, that of the body itself and the environment that surrounds them. Understanding how they perceive their town, we try to provoke in girls, boys, and teenagers a new vision of everyday spaces, seeking to break with the familiar and so that they can see the same places with different eyes.

“Among the situationist procedures, drift is presented as a technique of uninterrupted passage through diverse environments. The concept of drift is inextricably linked to the recognition of psychogeographic effects and the assertion of a playful-constructive behavior that opposes it in all aspects to the classical notions of travelling and walking. […]. But drift, in its unitary character, comprises that letting go and its necessary contradiction: the mastery of psychogeographic variables through knowledge and the calculation of possibilities. […]. Chance plays in the drift an even more important role the less settled the psychogeographical observation is. “

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.
