About Change this

Methodology

Cooperation with international artists and experts: The methodology of the puente_lab is based on building bridges of communication between people/ distant places and the exchange of ideas as a principle of creative activity. Cultural activation processes that the puente_lab carried out have as central axis the direct participation of people with international experience in the specific field of the project being developed. For each project the puente_lab selected, through its network of contacts, artists or suitable for the development of the required activity experts, this selection can be made directly or through a call. Development of specific proposals for each context: the projects that the puente_lab develops born from the specific needs of the place or entity with which you are working. The first step of each project is a process of dialogue and exchange with the institution that commissioned the project and the creation of a conceptual framework from the perusal of the territory, contact with experts, and research and documentation about the place or topic to be worked.
