Community Development


As an example of a model of alternative education, the Ivan Illich School courses doubled in eight months, from 40% last year to 80%. 315 hours of education were offered by over 50 resources. People from various social contexts interacted in these free classes. The school managed to achieve and exceed all goal proposed. Not only participating students benefited from the classes but also the surrounding communities. One example was the “Collaborative Design Workshop” course that took place in the Caño Martín Peña community where in collaboration with the residents of the community a creative quality living space was achieved. The International recognition of Ivan Illich School is impressive. In 2012, “Los Límites del Espacio Público” project which was the result of a course taken at the school, was selected to participate in the Venice Biennale of Architecture 2012.
