Pablo Collada Agustín Frizzera
14 May 2017

We have had so many conversations with Pablo Collada, in so many bars, in so many cities, that I find it strange to have him sitting here in this set to record the interview.

Talking with Pablo is a real pleasure, because of his experience and because he knows how to share it, with ease and generosity.

Sitting down here at the IMPA Cultural Center in Buenos Aires, he shared his vision of the strategic value of public pedagogy, some reflections on dance, and also stories about the Lobby Law they pushed through in Chile, which is definitely something we can learn from.

Below, the full interview:


Politics Recovered is a series of interviews to 11 leading members of the Network of Political Innovation in Latin America. Taking advantage of the fact that they were meeting in Buenos Aires, Agustín Frizzera asked them what their vision of the new ways of doing politics is, and how do they approach the building of citizens’ rights and the inclusive use of technology.
