SUMMER ART DAY CAMP
In this series of workshops, participants were led to explore their identification with the territory and to discover, reveal and invent signs, symbols and identity markers through a series of practical exercises, oriented around graphic and plastic creation. Workgroup performative creation workshops complemented the program to prepare for the final presentation of the projects.
