In 2010 the Santos de Maimona City Council signed an assignment agreement, valid for
five years, leaving to the ConceptuArte Collective two warehouses of the old concrete factory to develop cultural activities.
Collectives, relatives, neighborhood and friends came and helped to restore the structure in self-building regime, during meetings
organized by the hosting collective. In this way important improvements were made in the construction process, and in the management
together with other political and business actors active in the cement factory. The Recetas Urbanas cooperation makes sense because
of its long experience in self-building and group work, these skills can not only make possible many projects with few economical
resources, but also promote and empower the group work links for a common wealth. In 2013 the activities, slowed down in 2012,
restarted with the preparation of the restoring project for the warehouses' vaults, to highlight the heritage in the surrounding industrial
area, in order to recuperate it in the traditional way. As usual practice in Recetas Urbanas projects, there will be instruction-sheet about
security and health to teach the participants how to work safely.
