GUADARRAMA OLIVERA, Rocío  and  MORENO CARRANCO, María. Alternative cultural spaces: Roma-Condesa area in Mexico City. Alteridades [online]. 2019, vol.29, n.58, pp.73-85.  Epub Feb 12, 2021. ISSN 2448-850X.

Alternative cultural spaces are characterized as much by the way they gather cultural and creative activities, as by the fluid relationships among sites for habitation, work, and leisure. From these gatherings and relationships, spatial heterogeneous ways of belonging and identity coalesce into the area known as Roma-Condesa in the center of Mexico City. The theoretical possibilities of the concept and the results of a mixed methods model stemming from the testimonials of inhabitants in the area, the spatial localization of activities and creators, and the registry of their creative processes in the urban transition between the earthquakes of 1985 and 2017 are evaluated.

Keywords : space; culture; spatial identity; urban transformations; everyday life.
