Mural Colors Beyond - Let's Draw Our Future

We know that the volunteer space is very important for the development of the students in the educational institutions that we support. We witness the productive and significant projects that are born from these experiences. As is the case of "Defenders of the Environment", the workshops in entrepreneurship and financial education, "The greatest lesson in the world" and in this case "Colors Beyond".

The ArtistLove Association group consists by Irantzú, anthropologist and Ferran, a psychologist, who join their passion for arts in order to make a social transformation from the educational level, visiting different places worldwide through the proposal "Colors Beyond". It was Barranquilla’s turn, where ArtistLove decided to apply their project at the Educational Institution Pies Descalzos.

Children, young people, teachers and parents took part in the making of a mural, in which the emblematic symbol is the Rainbow Project along with the phrase "Listening to our dreams, drawing our future", a phrase chosen by all participants because of the identity it generates. Where goals and talents of our educational community were captured, leaving their prints and brushes which will last for a long time.

"Colors Beyond - South America" is an international collaboration project promoted by ARTISTLOVE Association. During the current year and 2018, the territory that will host the initiatives of this entity will be South America with a common goal: "to promote social transformation through community and educational artistic interventions."

The starting point of the "Colors Beyond" project is the active and protagonist role played by local teams, aware of their realities, problems and strengths. The role of ARTISTLOVE is an alliance that shares methodologies, participatory processes and community artistic creations through education for the benefit of the community.
