With the purpose of creating a meeting space for neighbors interested in videogames, animation, and fantastic literature, a role-playing session was held coordinated by specialist Jorge Armando Ibarra. Neighbors of different backgrounds and ages met and participated in an activity designed to develop abilities in dialogue, collaboration, and imagination, as well as the creation of fictional narratives.
Jorge Armando Ibarra and his collaborators adapted a role-playing exercise to the social and historical context of Santa María La Ribera. In the course of the dialogue several fictional situations were created about decision making of the participants. These situations revealed general concerns about public life in the barrio, such as real-estate speculation, neighborly solidarity, and environmental degradation. All these issues were acted by characters in fictional situations, with participants using different strategies that were based on the need to join efforts among neighbors.
