REAPPROPRIATION OF PUBLIC SPACES

Marina Osca i Redón

Children’s art workshop.
Activities: team dynamics; juggling; games with diabolos; urban painting; face painting; and paper art.
Parc Central, Valencia, 2022.

This proposal, based on the premises of Immunity – Community, aims to make public spaces accessible to the neighbors, after the pandemic of Covid-19. To do this, we reassign the dynamics and activities to public spaces, we try to offer other forms of leisure outside of consumption and also leisure activities related to activism.

In short, this project proposes, from the Joves x Russafa collective, activities for all the neighbors in spaces that help to create neighborhood fabric: “Xicalles” in the Central Park, Cineforums in the Russafa Platform, in collaboration with this and sports championships in the open space of the Central Park. For the moment we have managed to carry out the first activity with great success among the youngest of the neighborhood.
