  • Description

    Description

    I'm an art teacher from a high school in a post-conflict zone. In the middle of the mountains of west Boyacá where there are the best emeralds in the world.
    My art class is focused on reducing the impact of war through social and individual self-recognition.
    I need help in planning, sometimes performing art classes, photography and videography projects and in some housework.

    A dog lives at home, I usually smoke inside the house.
    I offer breakfast, dinner and weekends breakfast, lunch and dinner.
    The couch is in the study room, shared bathroom.

    Help

    Our association is at an initial stage. Our main objective is creating an impact in the community through the arts. It is located in a colonial house in the town centre. There is a café which offers a space to the artists for their promotion and cultural exchange.

    The help needed respond to different aspects in the association. You can do workshops in diverse areas of knowledge (languages, music, drawing, photography, etc.). You can also offer music, drama, poetry presentations as well as offer a hand with the house general maintenance and the garden.

    In order to have a good atmosphere in our small community, we expect help in the general home tasks, such as cleaning and tidying the house. We also appreciate that you have your own initiative at suggesting new ideas a future projects for our association.

    Está iniciando un camino en el que pretende impactar a la comunidad con ayuda de las artes.
    Su sede es una casa colonial cerca del centro de la ciudad en donde se encuentra funcionando un café que facilita a los artistas su promoción y el intercambio cultural.
    Las tareas en la casa son variadas, se pueden dictar talleres en diferentes áreas del conocimiento (idiomas, musica, dibujo, fotografía, etc), ofrecer presentaciones de música, teatro, narración u otras manifestaciones del arte y ayudar con el mantenimiento y/o mejoras de la planta física ( jardín, pequeñas reparaciones).
    Al conformarse dentro de la casa una comunidad se espera ayuda con las labores propias de la casa que tienen que ver con el aseo, el orden y el buen uso de las instalaciones. También valoramos la iniciativa propia a la hora de sugerir nuevas ideas y futuros proyectos para la asociación.
