Thank you’s

This blog shares all the stories I heard while visiting Colombia, Chile and Peru in July 2017.

My name is Ella Britton, this project came about while working in Mexico with design and architecture students at Tec de Monterrey, establishing civic-design programmes that integrate university education with the needs of Mexican communities.

I was interested in challenging my top-heavy focus north to Europe and the USA, and learn more about the Latin America creative and socially innovative context. Learning from countries that have creative practice, activism, collectivism and social transformation at their heart. Obviously this is just touching the surface, but these are the people and places I was lucky enough to meet.

Huge thank you for your time and brilliance to…
