Taller Topotesia

Wednesday 17th, Thursday 18th of May

The Possible Futures, the Fiesta, is a workshop of ludic genesis, shared intensity and palpable reality. During its development we will analyze, propose and develop strategies for the reactivation and urban regeneration that will take as a point of action a small municipality of the Empty Spain (Vallecillo). The workshop will be focused on materializing and implementing the proposals of the participants during the summer of 2017, within the framework of the multidisciplinary festival Playa-220, which celebrates its second edition between 1st and 5th of August.

The workshop will have as ultimate target a pilot test of the strategies and proposals developed along its duration, taking place at the closing party of COCA, on Friday 19th.


This workshop seeks to engage participants in their own proposals, as a result of collective work, open and unprejudiced (hence La Fiesta), in the problems that marginal societies (in this case, rural) are suffering.
