Casa Vecina (Neighboring House) is a cultural space that develops, produces and disseminates projects of contemporary art and culture, with the aim of widening the dialogue and experiences among artists, academics, scientists and other cultural players, together with the different communities of the Historic Center of Mexico City.
With more than 10 years working with the neighbors and the community, Casa Vecina is a space that arises from experimentation, research and the production of works, thoughts and actions that deepen in the relevant subjects of our time. Its lines of work specially emphasize the construction of community links; creating artistic dialogues, knowledge, affections and cultural and interdisciplinary reciprocities for their diversification and enrichment.
The three lines of work that define Casa Vecina‘s actions are:
Cultural Residency – It supports researches and art or culture productions, whether Mexican or foreign, that are linked to some of the communities in Mexico City.
MicrourbanismCH – It develops projects such as interventions, facilities, architectural and urban research, to improve neighborhood and public spaces.
Motions: seminars of artistic production – This Program is directed to those starting their creative career, which combines theoretical reflection in seminars and artistic production.
Domestic care – This program seeks strengthening creative, reflective and affective bonds, both within the work team and with neighbors. It contemplates four lines of action: green roof, exhibitions, talks and collective workshops.
Casa Vecina is located in 1er Callejón de Mesones #7.
