Soccer and school for 1500 Colombian kids at risk

Community's young cultural manager

In April 26, 2014th Tiempo de Juego will be inaugurating its creative laboratory, “Labzucá”, a place that will be ran and used by youth from the community of Cazucá. We are convinced of the positive impact culture has on local development and social cohesion and the convening power of audiovisuals and music amidst the youth. Labzucá will offer a place where sharing, imagination and creativity will be used as tools to promote positive social change and sense of belonging. This creative laboratory will also permit youth to receive training and learn new technologies that will encourage them to dream in being young artists and cultural managers with a dignifying life project.  

Thanks to Llorona Records, our main partner in this project, qualification programs will be developed in Labzucá, training youth in audiovisual creation and music production. Finally, it is thanks your confidence in our mission that we have been able to create a place that will trigger the democratization of cultural resources and technology in a community where there are many young latent talents but few opportunities and trust. With your support, Labzucá will now be home of young creators, journalists and musicians that, in the short-term, will be able to record their own dreams.
