Fundación Pazamanos

Fundación Pazamanos is a Medellín based NGO that works on social change through culture and art. Using artistic projects to change perception in the community concerning issues of safe spaces, victim blaming, and leadership development, their work also focuses on integration of former inmates back into society through a skills training program. One such transformational project is The Corners of Colors, recently launched in Comuna 13, one of Medellín’s most dangerous and violent zones located in the central northwestern Antioquia district.
