Turning Places into Different Knowledges : City Tour

art project
public space
urban intervention

// This is a space for the creation of thought, knowledge sharing and collective construction. The objective is to work on the idea of community to propose and implement collective actions in specific public spaces. All of this is done with basic principles like fun, sharing, learning and the sketching of a better world. //

// This experience will develop into a march/procession/ demonstration looking for interaction with the audience. This is where teaching becomes a micro-social experiment where everyone proposes and develops a specific role for a common purpose… with the challenge of understanding the unity in the diversity. //
