Steps to get it done:
Before coming to London I had done researches about rubbish in Barcelona in migrants associations, schools and groups of craft.I published in France about the relevance between the domestic and public space, the volume of trash and the contradictions between policies besides a big lake of a practice in order to learn how to manage with the phenome that a consumer society grows. I did many workshops, there I could check a change in domestic groups considerable changes in cleaning, gender relations, kids tasks, at the end a care of environment. In Anthropology I follow the current research and action, Slow anthropology. Here, in a the market, during one year, almost every Sunday I m doing craft with plastic bags, bottles workshops for kids and adults. I m able to confirm that people change their consideration and need to speak very much what to what to do with all this material as permanent question.So, I decided to spread in a formal way with a stall at the market as a reference
