El Warcha
Vale de Chelas

The workshop of the multidisciplinary group El Warcha in Vale de Chelas will be developed with children from the neighbourhood, in partnership with the Associação Geração Com Futuro, aiming to build a new community space. For this purpose, contact was established in order to listen to the participants and residents and start imagining a space filled with music, fun and play — an entertaining, comfortable and stimulating space for the creativity of kids and adults.
