Where and when

Madrid, Spain. 6 August 2016 to 21 August 2016

Theme description

Unbuilding Walls.

Project description

Participants will work with Fundación Escuela para la Solidaridad (FES), an organization working to create a safe and supportive environment for persons who have been excluded from society. The IPP will explore the themes of privilege and exclusion through integration into the everyday life of the communities that FES supports. Working with FES, participants will help to break down the barriers separating these communities from society by assisting with childcare, farming, building maintenance, and leading workshops. Along the way, the IPP hopes to demonstrate that generosity can come from both sides of the wall.

  • Be easy-going, open-minded and non-judgmental.
