The ideas for the miracles arise from the " Cans of Miracles " and from the accomplishment of the " Workshops of miracles " during the last May and June. There were gathered hundreds of desires describing Sondika,desires that suppose protests, requests and offers of improvement. The proposal of Xelo Boch and Cyrille Larpenteur reveals as a metaphor that tries to rescue the most extraordinary and wonderful meaning of the word miracle to unveal with its creative part. The proposal works also as an ironic metaphor of the artist, of the work and of what sometimes is expected from this type of art interventions in public sphere. The project implies a research of different forms of participation and reflection of the citizenship in their environment. With the techniques proposed by the artists, different types of "miracles" are to be developed: the realizable ones, the imaginary ones and those who need from an long-term impulse of the inhabitants. The day of miracles divides in several groups: cycling Sondika, concentrate Sondika, daydream Sondika and dance Sondika.
