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.
Reference 1: 596 acres
596 acres is a project of the Fund for the City of New York, and it creates different ways for neighbors to find an empty space in their neighborhood and use it for their own needs. Project started in May 2011 in Brooklyn, New York.
It distributes information about publicly owned land, and provides legal support for neighbors who want to use those spaces. In the first year of the project 15 communities started to use empty lots with the help from 596 acres.
