ImaginAction Residency in Palomino, Colombia-July 17-27

ImaginAction’s Residency #2 in Palomino-Colombia

July 17-27

Come join us on this 10-day residency as we work with local communities at Palomino, in the Colombian Guajira. We will live for 10 days in a modest ecological conclave (Hostal La Media Luna) at the foot of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, from where we will continue working with the local community that has long suffered as a result of the armed conflict. They continue to endure a human rights crisis, regularly confronting forced displacement, loss of cultural identity, racial discrimination, lack of environmental protection and abandonment by governmental institutions.

We will also enjoy incredible day-trips to some of the outstanding natural surroundings that the local people are trying to keep from appropriation by the tourist industry.

In  past residencies in Palomino, aswell as in Northern Ireland and China, the team has offered hands-on theatre trainings and interventions in the host community.  This immersive process creates much opportunity for reflection on a daily basis—reflection on the transformation of both the community and ourselves! We try our best to document the work (via video and note-taking) in order to share with other facilitators around the world who are interested but perhaps unable to access this type of apprenticeship.

Cost: $1,100, which includes accommodation, food, TO training and activities for 10 days
