Every person has the right to participate in making the place they live in,
the best place.

works with young people and local organizations to reinvent public space by inspiring people to placemaking and build community at night. In this process we also seek to improve their life opportunities and promote the development of their identity and creativity.

Metodology

The work we do with the youth is always guided by two complementary pillars:

Laboratory
(light/creativity)

where the collective

creation takes shape

through the exploration

and learning about

artistic lighting

Placemaking
(transformation)

reinvention of a community place through intervention

in public space and night activations.

Laboratory

space for learning and light exploration in which new technical and essential skills are acquired, and collectively develop ideas for artistic creation that will transform a space into a common place.

...I can put light in my room.
In other words,
 what I learned here, I can do at home...

We work for young people to acquire skills and knowledge that will enable them to understand the role that light plays in our lives. We focus on light's potential as a tool that, beyond the functional aspect, transforms the environment, conveys messages and communicates emotions. What they learn has various applications as a professional practice.

Placemaking

is a collaborative process  to reinvent spaces and transforming them into places for the community based on the identities and needs of each neighborhood.

...There is something contagious en about having a group of kids, strangers and artists that get together and take over a place that people think is forgotten.

We collaborate with communities to make dynamic, healthy and safe night spots that express identity and strengthen community ties.

Help us to build community by placemaking!

With your collaboration we can transform more neighborhoods into safe, dynamic and community places.
