On this website, you will find proposals to let yourself be collected and become part of this community. I propose several experiences where you can share what it is like for you to be a spectator.

Like the interactive icon that you will always find in the corner of the screen, or in the interactive instructions, every monday and friday, from october 26 to November 16.
