Integration process Caracas / IPC

Gabriel Nass and Ambar Armas, who were part of the call for artists “Art and community: proposals for integration”, guided a walking tour from Plaza Bolívar de Baruta to the La Cruz sector. The guests and attendees of the Green Meeting visited several private gardens of neighbors while talking about the nature of the species, those that grow wild in streets, sidewalks and residual spaces, as well as the private ones that receive care in private gardens. Each point is part of the “La Palomera Garden” map, which is the result of a survey of the neighborhood's green spaces and the stories associated with them. It served as the base for the guided tour, pausing at various points signaled on the map.
