Participatory Action Research (PAR) will be one of the main methodologies we will be exploring together as a group. For this reason, it's great to know how familiar people are with it. Having previous experience with PAR is not a requirement.
Code of Conduct: RecrearMagnify is neither a summer school nor a vacation. The program will be a lot of fun and will require your full participation. Notice that sharing space with a bunch of people from all over can be quite a challenge. We cherish diversity. At Recrear, people of very different backgrounds and lifestyles share the same space, and we think that is great. This is an adventure for us all: be flexible, stay focused and have fun.
You are looking for a community to practice your growth…
We are too.
Recrear Magnify is a residency program for those who seek to nourish their creative and reflective selves. For two weeks, you’ll find a home for your exploration. Every edition we come together around a question that invite you to strengthen your own social practice through participatory action research.
** We offer partial scholarships to those who want to join us but cannot afford it.Interested?

We create intentional space for self-exploration– from this place of self inquiry we invite more genuine connections with others. We overcome boundaries of nationality, race, religion and small-talk through group processes aimed at discovering that boundaries between people are fictional.
We embark on this collective exploration process inspired by the principles of Participatory Action Research. For those wanting to deepen learning and creative research practices in their work, there is no better way to learn than experiencing it first hand. Through action research we’ll discover how community experiences are co-created.
Face-to-face encounters remain central to collective discovery. We don’t just ‘live under the same roof’, we create a lab for intercultural connection and self-exploration. By the end of our collective exploration, we’ll have created the foundation to make long-term collaboration possible.
We strive to select a very diverse group for the program to learn as much as possible from each other. Young professionals interested in participatory research and/or community development, representatives from NGOs and other institutions interested in our model, students, artists interested in transforming their creative techniques into research methods… the list is long!
