The objective of this intervention was to meet the residents of the Arxiduc neighborhood to take out our chairs and occupy public space to chat in the street like our grandparents did in past times. The Güilis Collective prepared different dynamics to share experiences and made different proposals around gentrification and community fabric. We ended the day with a “tramponada” (a typical Majorcan meal) and with the viewing of the documentary “Mi Kerido Puto Barrio” (“My dear fucking neighborhood”).

It was a joint initiative with the Amics de la Casa del Poble Association (The Friends of the house of the people), where other groups such as “Flipau amb Pere Garau” (“Freak out with Pere Garau) and STOP evictions were also invited.

These are some of the questions we went through:

How is gentrification transforming our city and how does it affect our community fabric? What spaces still belong to us? What can art do? How can we prevent art from being instrumentalized and turned into a gentrifying agent?
