Esta es una Plaza is a self-managed project taking the form of a community garden, as well as a neighborhood hub. It strengthens the "social fabric" of the neighborhood, as well as defends values such as open knowledge, ecology & up-cycling.
This heritage has able, throughout these years, to revive an abandoned public space and transform it into a common good for the district of Lavapiés and for the whole city of Madrid.
This photo-report is part of a series of exploration about self-organized communities.
It's a 100% self-funded project. If you like my work, you can help me to continue these explorations and shine a light on more amazing communities with a donation :
