“The Good Neighbour” is an editorial project that focuses on how that what passes through the local territory activates art practices as tools for analysis and knowledge of the present. 

“The Good Neighbour” faces the crisis of the principle of 'neighbourhoodness' and the relative organization and privatization of urban space from which it entails a series of social injustices. The general context is formed by the worldwide political and economic-financial failures, eroding cities. Contemporary art practice is, here, an instrument for understanding and analyzing social transformations, for describing what is not yet decoded. 

In this sense “The Good Neighbour,” is proposed as a generator of contact and community, as an analysis tool and creative research. As the human megaphone invented by Occupy Wall Street, a word-of-mouth of the crowds to get around the prohibition of using megaphones, that reminds us how in New York as well as other 900 cities around the world where the indignados raised there voice, the problem is a creative one, to experimenting with new forms of participation, new ways of the common life and recover the sense of conviviality.
