Casa Tres Patios (C3P) is a non-profit foundation and center for contemporary thought that promotes social justice in Colombia through artistic practice, participatory action research, critical pedagogy and capacity building. Since 2006 C3P has been supporting the community and community groups in areas such as citizenship, human rights, gender, social reintegration, peacebuilding, organizational development and artistic practice.
C3P began by supporting the artistic community and incorporates the power of art and creativity to change people's lives and to create a just society. We believe that need and compassion are the motors and that art, creativity, knowledge and critical thinking are the tools for making change happen.
"Our programs have benefited more than 5,000 people including 3,000 girls, boys and young people, members of the LGTBI community, ex-FARC combatants, municipal employees, inmates in the prison system in Medellin, other community based organizations and the general public in Medellín and the surrounding areas.
Through our artistic, research and educational programs we inspire, motivate and accompany individuals and organizations in the creation of new visions for the future, and in turning those visions into reality."
