According to a study case published by the University of Nuevo Leon, there are public areas abandoned, without maintenance, inaccesible for participation, affecting on increasing insecurity and social segregation. Through cultural and artistic interventions, this project has an impact in connecting people and encouraging social participation for the recovering this areas.

The process of participation involves creativity and networking, providing different open spots to make visible during each year, a diversity of more than 100 people and organizations, taking action for social cohesion and local sustainable development (including 3 main pillars: community, environment, and social and solidarity economy).
