CODES - Actividades - Programa Social 2

 

The social program 2 consists of a space enabled to enjoy cultural diversity through art. To do so, La Candela Teatro will guide us through a process of joint creation with the assistants in a village in the province of Valladolid, where the following live activities will be found to accompany the trip:

-Realization of a graffiti in a common area, by Deep. It will be based on the stories that people tell through the process of creation.

-Photographic exhibition with photos contributed by the speakers of the congress, all of them about the reality of the African continent.

- Live concert, by Seydu, singer and musician from Sierra Leone.
