On this phase, different actions and events will be explained, all of them with the same premise, taking the chair as identity icon of San Antón neighborhood and as a reclaim of public space. The final objective , then, would be the regeneration of the public spaces of the neighborhood.
The format to work on this phase is format B. This mean to transform us into “activists” and try to mobilize the neighborhood, wake their possibilities up and make an effort to transform them into reality with collaboration of all parts and agents involved.
A new design to promote the project, San Antón Knowledge Institute, comes to the neighborhood and a itinerant intervention, do it aswell outside the “walls” of San Antón.
WHAT IS SAN ANTÓN KNOWLEDGE INSTITUTE?
It is a process developed in order to reactivate the degradated area of this neighborhood in the heart of Alicante. It must have a revitalization of the whole neighborhood, and it must began from themselves, within their own resources and skills. For that, there would be created three workshops, according to different themes ( cook, build and craft) and create kind of a “knowledge tank” which will be the main attractor of foreign agents. The project will be developed in three phases, one of each workshop. The first will be used as visual attractor and the two remaining for refurbishing physically the neighborhood.
