Our Project in English

<p> Dear all,</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> We are 4 students in Communication in IHECS Brussels School doing our <strong>final thesis</strong>. We would like to create a <strong>web documentary on Medellin</strong> in Colombia and its huge transformation these past few years and are therefore going there to meet cultural and political players during 5 weeks. To bring this project to life called &ldquo;Du Cartel au Culturel&rdquo; we need all the help we can get!</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> <strong><u>The project:</u></strong></p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> In 30 years, Medellin in Colombia went from <strong>one of the most dangerous cities</strong> in the world to receiving the price for &ldquo;<strong><em>the most innovative city</em></strong>&rdquo; in 2013 by the Urban Land institute. This is the result of many political decisions and citizen initiatives and although everything is not perfect yet, this city deserves our attention.&nbsp;</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> Indeed, you probably know Medellin for its drug cartel led by the notorious Pablo Escobar which brought violence and criminality into everyone&rsquo;s home during the 80s. Lately, with the arrival of <strong>Sergio Fajardo</strong>, the new mayor of the city, they established new <strong>development plans </strong>including topics such as urbanisation, education, environment, health, mobility and <strong>culture</strong> to try to prevent violence and poverty instead of fighting it. Moreover, they strive to <strong>include the population</strong> in the decision processes.</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> The cultural sector of the city is flourishing (with the construction of new libraries, social projects in poor neighbourhoods, &hellip;) and we want to understand the importance of cultural projects in the restructuration of the city together with its urbanistic changes. Medellin is seen as a model for its urbanistic development but we want to dig deeper and know how the links are made between the politics and citizen initiatives; <em>what are their motivations and which impact does it have on social and cultural prosperity?</em> We want to give you a <strong>realistic point of view</strong> by meeting these cultural and political players.</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> For more information about the project you can visit our Facebook page where we post articles and links to understand how the city has changed:&nbsp;</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> <a data-saferedirecturl="https://www.google.com/url?hl=en&amp;q=https://www.facebook.com/ducartelauculturel/&amp;source=gmail&amp;ust=1465296512437000&amp;usg=AFQjCNE8of9TbGmO_Ua0LThicFcVAxXVLg" href="https://www.facebook.com/ducartelauculturel/" target="_blank">https://www.facebook.com/<wbr />ducartelauculturel/</a></p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> Thank you in advance for showing interest in our project.</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> The team &quot;Du Cartel au Culturel&quot;&nbsp;</p>
