During the recent oscedays.org event here in Barcelona, I participated in Rizoma, a street based project that aimed to develop an open and circular ecology between the resources offered by different participative spaces in Barcelona - both formal, institutional spaces and less so. My aim was to map agents, resource types and actual tasks carried out by the group(using OCP - which is the software also used in Sensorica.co for an open system for mapping and structuring cooperative community projects) whose practical purpose in that event was to build a free play area in a local urban garden with a playground space in it. We all got to know various open spaces around Barcelona and participated actively in processing and elaborating recycled materials to create play structures.
We were left also with a wish to be able to undertake more of this kind of work, and even make it into an ongoing project so people can follow the same process as us, to build more resources for urban spaces, or for other socially positive or community based purposes.
I’d be really interested in involving transformaps work and use a community bucket to put the taxonomy as well as all the maps we have that map different aspects of Barcelona’s alternative economies and spaces. I thought it could be a practical tour, or even a game allowing people to physically get to know these spaces, and at the same time, to somehow build on this data and on the definitions of different terms that might be necessary in our context.

I hope I’ve understood properly and that this is a good practical application of transformaps’ work, but I’m totally happy to debate this further!
