We are pleased to present the results of the first phase of Creative Labs, Isla Baru: Sazon, Rhythm and Creation, an initiative in which 629 people participated, all of them, inhabitants of the village of Ararca, Santa Ana and Baru, located in Isla Baru.
The beneficiaries, aged between 9 and 90, had the opportunity to assist to the Laboratories in different areas: Dance, Design, Gastronomy, Music, History and Oral Literature, where the activities developed, helped strengthen the social bases as well as provided tools that allowed them to not only find their roots and recognize their identity, but also improve their quality of life through the development of creativity, productivity training and culture. Furthermore, the project generated 51 direct jobs and 351 indirect jobs, figures beat expectations of the project.
For the implementation of the initiative, FONADE, had the support of the Corporation Sonidos de la Tierra, the Leonor Espinosa Foundation and as an ally the Ministry of Culture of Colombia.
Each workshop has its own history. So this text, through the testimonies and stories of participants and facilitators, photographs and illustrations we want to share the experience of the Gastronomy Laboratories.
