Rutilio Gacís Square

La Parcería was born as a collective dedicated to reflection, creation and action. It is made up of people from a migrant background and it aims to produce cultural projects that are developed around the street, the neighbourhood and public space. Like other independent associations linked to children, La Parcería also presses for cultural policies oriented towards care and participation through its initiatives and in a way that is situated in the territory of the city.

I believe that we should promote an active relationship between children and the city, thought activities that increase their local and identity knowledge

a meaningful way of collaboration could be media and communications or a digital platform. Everything nowadays is going digital and it would increase visibility, better outreach to your audience and even find support

Collaborations that means that children can meet different role models and mentors (different genders, ethnic belonging, ages, a s o) are fundamental for the young to be brave, to go where no one been before, to do amazing things. That´s how we – as humans – grow and thrive.

Parents and carers, and their respective associations, are key constituencies to collaborate with, in all stages of designing, drafting and implementing of any public policies. They are in best place to know the needs, dreams and interest of children and may therefore prevent any harmful side-effects of practices of new policies.

Transport and mobility planners – Amsterdam, for example, has converted many street parking places into pause and play spaces for caregivers and children.

This is probably less about categories than individuals… but maybe think about carers, coders, peace negotiators, gamers, hackers, cartographers, historians and archivists… In our experience, people who are close to retirement are often the best and biggest radicals.

I like the idea of collaborating with police or some version of public safety – safety is always a key concern.

Choose collaborations that are unexpected and that have the potential to put childen’s ideas, imaginations and stories directly to those who have the power to change or influence public policies in response.
