We design workshops to facilitate processes of social change and healing through art, promoting new forms of encounter between the members of the community. Sharing life experiences in spaces of play, creation and reflection strengthens bonds and promotes participation. We use the power of the arts to facilitate the construction of identity and belonging in creative processes that strengthen the community.
We propose the collective construction of new ways of inhabiting the teaching-learning relations from the cosmovision of living education and respectful nurturing, both in schools and universities and in alternative projects of non-formal education. We focus on working with adults to help children and adolescents grow up in environments of respect and listening to their authentic needs and have the possibility to develop their potential with freedom.

Group and individual spaces for creative experimentation and artistic research for self-knowledge. Plastic arts, theatre, music, movement and creative writing as tools for learning while creating. An exploration free of judgments with focus on what was experienced during the process.
Our proposal is based on the conviction that expression is a necessary path for emotional and physical healing. "Expression" means a force that originates within and is directed outward (inner listening processes), as opposed to "oppression" or "repression" which is an external force that is directed inward.
