The issue that "Cazuca Dreams On" aims to tackle is the culture of violence and marginalization that is internalized by Cazuca's residents and, more specifically, by Cazuca's children and youth. This project employs theater, dance and music as powerful tools of social cohesion, incentivizing changes in behavior, turning kids into dreamers and encouraging them to be main agents of social transformation
The issue that "Cazuca Dreams On" aims to tackle is the culture of violence and marginalization that is internalized by Cazuca's residents. Many Cazuca residents, especially children, have internalized violence as a normal factor they have to deal with, proliferating a sentiment of resignation and apathy regarding different types of violence and mistreatment.
"Cazuca Dreams On" strives to strengthen the community of Cazuca by employing culture as a tool of social transformation, encouraging them to fight for a dignifying life project and allowing them to construct ambitious dreams in which violence, mistreatment and social exclusion are not a constant in their lives.
