El Warcha
Vale de Chelas

The workshop by multidisciplinary group El Warcha in Vale de Chelas was developed with children from the neighbourhood, in partnership with Associação Geração Com Futuro, and built a new community space. To this end, contact was established with the participants and residents who began to imagine a space filled with music, fun and play — a playful, comfortable and stimulating space for the creativity of kids and adults alike.
