First Steps of Our Itinerant exhibition: Project "1800 young in Medellin sensitized to HIV: a hope"
By Fundacion SiFuturo - Fundacion SiFuturo
We want to thank to all our benefactors of Global Giving that have made the project “1800 young in Medellín, sensitized to HIV: a hope” a reality.
So far we have focused on the planning of the exhibition, which will allow us to establish a dialogue with the community around the HIV/AIDS subject, seeking to fulfill our educational and awareness-raising purposes. We are very pleased with this good start and the alliances that we have made. Following, the most relevant ones are described:
Agreement pending with the Faculty of Arts of the University of Antioquia, which will allow the participation of students from different levels, with works, assembly and the curator of the exhibition, among others.
The “Caja de Compensación Familiar”, Comfenalco - Antioquia through its Department of Culture will advise on design, staging and the announcement of the exhibition.
In the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Antioquia, in the course of art of the flexible curriculum for medical students, we have the support of Professor Elkin Usuga who already made the call among students so that they link to this initiative. Some of them already accepted, and we are in the process to facilitate their approach with some people living with HIV, so they are more sensitized to perform their works.
Eight non-professional artists have joined this initiative; the vast majority of them are health workers, who have offered different forms of art expressions such as painting, drawing, sculpture and origami.
The Illustrator and Colombian artist Catalina Estrada, resident in Spain will donate one of her works, honoring the respect and love for life.
We have an online permission, waiting for the legal signature, of the Museum of fine arts of Santiago of Chile to reproduce one of their master pieces, giving the appropriate credits.
Thanks to your support we are making this dream come true!!!
