In the last two months, Tiempo de Juego organized two events that strived to change the negative imaginaries associated to the life and the community of Cazucá. The first of these events, a cultural festival called Cazucá Sueña (Cazucá Dreams), was planned and executed by the children and youth who participate weekly in the music and theatre classes offered by Tiempo de Juego.  The second event, the TEDxCazucá, was organized by team members from Tiempo de Juego, as well as by some of Cazuca’s emblematic leaders.

 Both events drew inspiration from sociological studies that document the positive impact that art, creativity, and culture can have on vulnerable communities. These interventions allowed participants and the larger community to develop an identity of empowerment and self-awareness, while also serving as a channel of expression. In fact, both initiatives sought to encourage children and youth to dream of being young artists and cultural leaders, deserving of a dignifying life project. Thanks to your credibility and trust in our work, we have been able to organize creative activities and events where the community of Cazucá has seen that, despite living in a complicated reality, it is possible to reach your goals and demonstrate to the world that Cazucá dreams on.
