Description

Continents was completed in 6 weeks of intense artistic and physical work. Before this intervention, the grey and depressing building did not reflect the laughter inside: a nursery school and a home for displaced children.  18 people participated in the workshop, including mothers and fathers of children attending the  school, teachers and workers, as well as neighbors and people from other parts of the city.
The group chose to represent animals from different parts of the world to exemplify the diversity within nature and society, while at the same time creating images that were recognizable and attractive to the children attending the school.

The Department of Education of Vitoria-Gasteiz was key in recovering this building. Not only was it esthetically improved but structurally as well: the roof was repaired, terrace, etc...
