DemocrArtization, Fundación BogotArt, Colombia

The BogotArt Foundation is a Colombian youth-led NGO established in 2013.

The foundation promotes the co-creation of art in the public space in conjunction with community members and free art workshops for underserved children. BogotArt uses the arts as a catalyzer of social equality, whereby all individuals, regardless of social, economic or cultural background, can find a space to develop their talents and contribute positively to their society.
