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.
