Empowering the young by art in El Alto, Bolivia

Description

The project aims at increasing the wellbeing of the young indigenous people who have moved from rural areas to the city of El Alto, and raising issues of rural-urban migration to improve cultural equality and equity. The purpose is to prevent conflicts caused by inequality and rural-urban migration. The project empowers the young through community art workshops. The participants learn about their rights, consider their cultural identity and status in society, create social networks, and produce art to express themselves and communicate with general public.
