ECUADOR



FEB - APRIL ’19

PROJECT INVOLVING TACTICAL URBANISM AND ARTISTIC INTERVENTION IN UNUSED AND UNDERUTILIZED PUBLIC SPACES.

TOCTIUCO IS A MARGINALIZED AND STIGMATIZED NEIGHBORHOOD IN QUITO, ECUADOR’S CAPITAL CITY.

TOGETHER WITH THE LOCAL COLLECTIVE “EXPERIENCIAS URBANAS” AND THE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION, WE ORGANIZED NUMEROUS COLLABORATIVE ACTIVITIES, SUCH AS COLLECTIVE MAPPING WALKS, FESTIVALS, PARTICIPATORY WORKSHOPS AND WORKDAYS TO REVITALIZE PUBLIC SPACES.
