Our "Visión 2020" campaign celebrates ReGeneración's growth into 2020-21 by asking for your support in our next level of story-healing workshops, historical memory children's books, and capacity-building opportunities.
Sprouted in Colombia. Blossoming in the United States. Taking root in each individual who believes in the power of vulnerability and agency.
ReGeneración seeks to give voice to that which we are expected to hush: our feelings, especially the uncomfortable ones. We envision a world where what we feel inside may be a source of power for what we do outside. We address conflict and trauma through creative arts.
By feeling comfortable in our own skin, we can develop our own sense of belonging and engage in advocacy locally, thereby setting an example of peace for the generations that are to follow us.
We achieve this through our main projects:
"Cual es tu Paz?" Story-Healing Workshops
"What is your Peace?" Each of us carries trauma from our own lives and that of generations before us. Our workshops are an opportunity to explore creative and interactive methods of reflection and reconciliation, centering around community building through story-telling, vulnerability, and performance.
We have organized 90 workshops (and counting), reaching more than 1,100 individuals of all ages in over 50 cities in 8 countries! We have done so in various languages and always free of charge.
Hosted in locations such as: Comunidad de Paz of San José de Apartadó (CO), UVA de la Imaginacion (CO), NYU School of Law (US), Colombian Consulate of Miami (US), Casa de los Amigos (MX), and Linwood Mosque of Christchurch (NZ).
Your support makes outreach, facilitation, travel, documentation, and expansion of these workshops possible.
"Pazcual" Children’s Books
Who is to tell our story? We will. Through our series of children’s books, we tell Colombia’s story of conflict & peace from the point of view of those most affected by the untold realities of daily life.
Launched with the inspirational story of Luisa Gil and her family's struggle in Carepa, Antioquia (CO), our books imagine the future without ever forgetting the past so that future generations may build a more peaceful today.
Your support makes collecting, drafting, illustrating, printing, and expanding this series possible.
Presentations & Trainings
Why now? Why me? Look around and you will notice the beauty of how far humanity has come...and you will also notice the despair of how far we have to go.
Through our interactive presentations and creative trainings, we have educated participants on the promise of justice through healing and empowered them to apply their own tools towards their local ends.
We have been invited and presented at several forums through various high schools, universities, community organizations, reentry programs, and small businesses.
In our 3 short years, we have taken important steps in building our momentum. We organized a youth delegation to observe the peace talks in Havana, Cuba. We designed a Voter Education Guide for national elections. We created the workshops and books mentioned above. We amplified the voice for peace beyond the borders of Colombia.
And now, your donation will help us build our momentum!
Our work is bold. And so is our fundraising goal. Your donation (of any amount) towards the goal of $20,000 will help host our 2020 leadership summit, sponsor our team to participate in development trainings (e.g. web design), and provide technical support for volunteers in Colombia & the US to make reality our mission...and vision 2020.
