Empower Parents: Imagining Common Spaces, is an editorial project written and coordinated by Laura Donis.

The book presents the experience of the program from its origin at the Queens Museum in New York to its implementation at the ICO Museum in Madrid. It also includes reflections and interviews with different agents, artists and families who participated in the program and who share their experience in first person. The book closes with a chapter dedicated to the practice of the program that aims, in a simple way, to expose the work carried out throughout these years.

It was published by the ICO Foundation in December 2020, in Spanish and English, and the content of both editions can be downloaded for free.
