EDUCATIVE  EXHIBITION AND ARTISTIC EXHIBITION

Between the 8th and the 23th of September 2016, a photo exhibition will be displayed “VIH, CONOCE Y DECIDE” (HIV, KNOW AND DECIDE), at the research headquarters of the “Universidad de Antioquia”. This art display includes 12 conceptual pictures taken by the audiovisual agency “MP4” with guidance from focus groups of people living with HIV and the Board of the SiFuturo Foundation.

The photos will be exhibited along with educational texts. The first photo of the exhibition and its corresponding text is attached. As of September 8, we will make a daily delivery of this exhibition. We seek to educate citizens on the importance of adopting self-care practices associated with a responsible sexuality. The expected public for this exhibition includes at least 500 high school students and an undefined number of college students. This exhibition will continue traveling to different educational institutions for supporting the workshops that we are currently doing.

In addition, we now have an open call for artists for two-dimensional works of art, which closes September 30th. The finalists and winners, will be exhibited from December 1 at the headquarters of the library of “Comfenalco” in Medellin. Promotional poster is attached.

INTERVENTION AT HIGH SCHOOLS 

To date, 690 adolescents, from 8 different educational institutions have been sensitized with workshops, strengthening their ability for taking decisions, with an emphasis on self-care and in a free, pleasant and responsible sexuality.

We enclose the testimonial video of one of them. For educational activities, we deliver a brochure with academic information regarding HIV/AIDS as teaching material that is distributed during the workshops at high schools, also at universities and different places where the message for HIV/AIDS prevention can be brought.

The Foundation has also continuous updating its educational blog (http: coconoceydecideaprendiendodelvih.wordpress.com) with at least 22 new entries since the beginning of the project. During the 2016 has received 1703 visits, 64 % from Colombia and the rest from 35 different countries.
