I’m on my way to México City and then Puebla. I want to visit a couple of designer friends. Carmina from TocToc, Esteban and Sylwia from Cazuela. Besides being designers, they all teach at local universities, so that should be fun.
Hopefully, I’ll manage to get into Puebla DataUp (because I didn’t secure my ticket on time).
On my way back, I’ll try to Rendeveouz with Miguel Melgarejo, also from TocToc and Fuera de Contexto. More importantly, he is Cirklo’s most recent acquisition. If I liked Cirklo’s work, I’m sure it will be more interesting from now on.
I went to holla Luis Alvarez, from El Narval. They work on civic innovation at street level. And I really mean street level. They help neighbours organize and empower themselves to make a city a better place, one block a time.
El Narval has matured their process, but more importantly, their civic innovation and particpation tools. Hopefully, by next year they will have a complete toolkit to help anyone learn how to organize and improve their community.
