Hiria hackeatu (2014) = Exploraciones urbanas (2014)
In collaboration with the leisure groups Auskalo (Antiguo) and Antxeta ttan-ttakun (Egia) we've organised this urban camp for young people aged 12 to 17 years. The aim is to promote new forms of "hacking the city". So, we will try to experience and transform the ways in which we live and construct the city in an active, constructive and fun way based on the tools new technologies offer us.
New ways of constructing the city, of sharing and working as a community are currently being tried out. Neighbourhoods, streets and public places are potential spaces for education. They offer us the opportunity to learn by doing.
Along the same lines, the working methods of so-called hackers and makers are currently having significant effects as educational and socially innovative elements: open-source production, collaborative work, applied solutions to resolve specific problems, spaces to share and exchange knowledge, tools and skills... the figure of the hacker helps us to think of ways to innovate, create and transform our cities.
Over the next five years, we will launch a critical look at the ways we use common spaces and the ways we can improve and transform them based on the aspects we are missing. To do this, we will plan urban explorations where we will collect information using different tools, we will take photos, draw, record sounds, interview people, collect objects...
With all this material, in the last two days, we will start the production phase that will culminate with small interventions throughout the last day.
