Medellín's public servants have a decisive role in mediating needs and conflicts between the Public Administration and the ordinary citizen. Hence the importance of developing tools that favor the creative transformation of conflicts.
Inspired by the work of the artist Adriana Ramírez entitled The following dozen, in which the participants agree to cook a menu from which everyone can eat and be satisfied, 9 laboratories were carried out with public servants from Medellín. The process of preparing a lunch collectively with people who did not know each other previously, was the excuse to talk about mediation and conflict transformation.
