P.arch – Playground for community architects

P.ARCH. PLAYGROUND FOR COMMUNITY ARCHITECTS
P.arch stems from a specific need, countering the growing level of educational poverty among young people in primary and secondary schools in Lazio and Sicily.

How will we do it? through the experimentation of an innovative and replicable educational process based on the use of creative methodologies and on the active and planning relationship with the territories, with a view to urban regeneration.
The project includes the suburbs of Rome, Palermo and Favara (AG) and it wants to create places of aggregation, to put schools at the center of the territories as a driving force for development and change.
P.arch provides for collaboration between different bodies such as universities, institutions, associations and with the involvement of teachers and families.

There will be many activities that we will carry out between 2019 and 2021, including:

  • Strengthening of the educating community
  • Experimentation of the creative learning path (architecture modules, storytelling, gaming)
  • Regeneration of  spaces in schools
  • Creation of Community LAB

P.arch is a project selected by Con i Bambini as part of the Fund for the fight against educational poverty for minors.
