ESPACIO_ AULA (“SPACES_CLASSROOM”). In this project we carried out an art mediation to generate collective processes in order to build up group links and collective space creations around the distribution of the classroom. This allowed us to articulate creative synergies from a ludic perspective on their way of perceiving space and their way of positioning themselves in the “common”, within the 3rd course of secondary education. On the basis of models, practices, affections and relations which are more horizontal, respectful and closer, we implemented inclusive, motivating and collective learnings through art methodologies, in order to develop new spaces thanks to the redistribution of their classroom generated by this process. This was an experience of building new spaces for the common learning of collective knowledges, where the students have shared their visions and contributions in order to create new ESPACIOS_AULA through participatory and collaborative art practices within the context of education.
