About REHOGAR

REHOGAR is a collective exhibition and annual gathering about open design and reuse/upcycling as tools for social transformation.

Organized by Makea Tu Vida collective, REHOGAR pays particular attention to processes. Transformation processes that are made possible through techniques of reuse and open design methodologies, with the latter meaning design that grows and evolves because it can be improved upon by and with other people. The focus is not on the finished objects but on the idea of project as process, the most valuable result of which, in many cases, is the ability to bring about other processes.

The exhibition presents a selection of practices and tools that can influence the social transformation of daily life.

A selection of interdisciplinary experiences aims to serve as a map for exploring spaces, methods, resources and communities that provide evidence, reasons, attitudes, policies, practices, implications and effects to sustain the development of projects, which are collaborative, open source and focus on social and environmental responsibility and the optimization of resources.

REHOGAR is also a space for reflection, where questions about the relevance to evolve towards this kind of behaviours and ways to doing can be shared.

In parallel with the exhibition a series of activities will be held, with the aim of disseminating and exploring the theoretical framework; experiencing first-hand and putting into practice some of the exhibited solutions and ideas; and creating spaces for remixing and entertainment that favour the generation and strengthening of collaborative networks.

In its nine editions (2009-2017) REHOGAR has exhibited more than 450 national and international works, weaving a solid network of people, professionals and communities that activate processes of transformation in their surroundings from the respect to the environment.

Thus, REHOGAR has become a referece meeting in the state sphere on open source design and constructive solutions for Habitat, based on the reuse of materials and the use of resources.
