Colombia Colores is a project aimed at the children of the Colombian diaspora that teaches about the richness of Colombian culture through music, art and dance . We hope to reach out to Colombian-born, second and third-generation Colombian children between the ages of 5-12. It is the first project implemented by CCC in London!
This project has arisen from a need expressed by the Colombian community in London to offer regular workshops on Colombian culture for their children. We hope to bring together the young Colombians and educate them on meaningful parts of Colombian culture and encourage them to feel connected and part of a larger community. You can learn more about the importance of Colombia Colores and the impact it can have on young Colombians in London by reading our blog.
