Taco Stand ProjectAn experiment in sharing.
The majority of taco stands in Mexico remain unregulated – they pop up as necessary and remain outside the framework of regulated restaurant culture. Borrowing from this culture of unregulated economy, the Taco Stand Project explores what opportunities reside in our community for empowering people to share their skills, trade tasks or things, or teach an original solution to a common problem. It aims to bring people together to find new ways of navigating contemporary challenges and proposes a different kind of norm, where trading skills and sharing takes place through community-minded collaboration with cost-free resources and social empowerment.
