Integration process Caracas / IPC

The event marked the beginning of the Caracas Integration process. It consisted of a set of presentations by various guests, on topics such as the real and symbolic integration of the city and the distinction between "formal" and "informal" city.
The speakers shared their experiences of integration from the perspective of art, pedagogy, urban design and local experiences at the basketball court of the La Cruz de La Palomera sector. Among those who attended the event were students, visitors from other parts of the city, children and members of the community. At the end of the presentations everyone participated in a workshop led by Katiuska Camargo, who invited people to draw proposals for urban, artistic and pedagogical transformation they could imagine for La Palomera.
