Black History Festival

At Tiempo de Juego, we keep creating intercultural spaces for our participants. This time, music was the highlight. Last February, we celebrated the Afroamerican history month with a music festival at Cazuca.

With the help of the U.S Embassy, we were part of a music festival that involved national and international artists: On one hand, we had the pleasure to receive Melissa McMillan in our neighborhood, a New York singer who delighted us with her jazz songs. On the other hand, "Plu con Pla", a band from Tumaco (at Colombian pacific coast), sang traditional songs and immediately made everyone dance. Finally, Fabrika, Tiempo de Juego's music band, played salsa, rock, and pop songs.

It was an incredible evening and a great opportunity for Cazuca's inhabitants to get to know the foundation's work and the children's results. It was amazing how people from the United States, the United Kingdom, and from all parts of Colombia came together to enjoy music and honoring African American history and culture.

Cienaga with Other Eyes

At this time, young people from Ciénaga are starting the year 2020 by training in the journalism workshop "Ciénaga con Otros Ojos" in its third module which has as a special guest Agustín Lara, ambassador for reconciliation of 'USAID' and 'ACDIVOCA'.

 

Lara has worked from tourism to change the image of Ciénaga (Colombia) as an incentive to rewrite its history, traditionally associated with violence.

 

On the country's coast, change is also taking place at the hands of good journalism, a bet of Tiempo de Juego and the Program for Reconciliation #PAR, in which young people will learn to change history by reporting the positive side of our land, changing the perspective we have about ourselves

At Fundación Tiempo de Juego we use play as a tool for community transformation, to promote the capacities of children and young people, inspiring them to be agents of change.

For more than a decade, Playtime has been consolidating an extensive body of experience and knowledge about how playful methodologies can transform realities. Whether it is a sport such as football, a music workshop or a video recording, playing provides children and young people with a privileged space to fully develop their human potential, to be happier.

This wealth of experience has allowed the organization to create the School of Leadership with a curriculum that guides the education of leaders through the unique Community Playful Empowerment approach.

Sport plays a very important role in the integral education of children and young people. It facilitates the learning process where, through discipline and perseverance, healthy habits and lifestyles can be generated. The participants develop physical and sporting abilities that allow them to build a positive and viable life project.

 

During 2019, thanks to your contribution and in partnership with local that are committed to promote change, we managed to work with girls, boys, young people and adults through XXX. In total, we have inspired, researched and transformed more than 11,000 people in Colombia
