Study Theme: In our own iMAGInada we have a Forum Space where we talk about different current conflicts, such as refugees, education, food, health, housing and we think it would be very interesting to participate in these spaces (usually the talks of This space is in Catalan or Spanish). In general, the project pursues the defense of freedom of expression and alternative methodologies of social and community transformation. We will put them in context of the reality of our environment and project and we will do some discovery of a project that is taking place locally and that may be of interest to you.
