My first assignment for El País, about Oxígeno Laboratorio Cultural association, a true cultural laboratory in Melilla, my hometown. Oxígeno carries out a multitude of cultural and artistic activities for children and young people, in some peripheral neighborhoods of the city, where access to these instances is more difficult.
