with the aim of becoming a collective knowledge system, the kits were designed as a replicable model. composed by a series of workshops and assignments to create initial ideas, understand the design, build the objects and use them in practice, we open sourced the design guidelines, so these toys could be made by anybody, and to foster their use in other spaces that provide restorative justice initiatives, alternative solving conflict dynamics or participatory and interactive design processes.

With each box, we developed workshops where the adolescents, professionals from the program and guests could learn the concept behind them, the place they occupied in the space, the importance of each box as a tool in the process and its functioning. They assembled the boxes themselves following the user manuals that comes with each one of them.
