The mobile school of arts and culture FRIENDS OF THE ORIGIN – La Guajira is an initiative created by young professionals in politics and arts to generate spaces of contemporary and traditional artistic education with a differential ethnic approach. The goal is mutual construction that induces social reconciliation, environmental culture, cultural exchange, sustainable economic development alternatives and encourage children and young people to spread peace, leadership, human development and preservation of our different ancient cultures.
