Juan Felipe Gomez Escobar Foundation

The Client

Juanfe Foundation is a non-profit organisation that seeks to improve the quality of life of children and teenage mothers in poverty conditions mainly in the city of Cartagena de Indias, Colombia.

Give Back

In 2016 Art+Believe got involved, they wanted to give the students the opportunity to create a permanent piece of artwork for their foundation, something that was a true community collaboration.

They took inspiration from the Colombian tribal patterns of the Wayyuu tribe and set about embracing the community, working with them to create something special.

 

 

Everyone has a vision

This was a project that touched Art+Believe, they wanted the artwork to be an all encompassing achievement of the whole community, not just a commission of theirs.  They hosted workshops and planned the mural artwork with the people.

Everyone got involved and worked together to execute a painting of real meaning and feeling onto one of the exterior walls at the foundation.
