This project aims to create a youth network of creative exchange and artistic production around music between Colombia, Peru and Uruguay. It seeks to strengthen the technical skills of young people in the use of tools and processes of music management in a collaborative way, so they can get involved in cultural entrepreneurship, in the exchange and circulation of cultural goods and experiences, and in the reconstruction of the social fabric. The project contributes to the creation of alternatives that foster education, equity and peace.

The Youth Network for Creative Interchange and Artistic Production was focused mainly on the music sector, starting with the development of a series of workshops (lasting from 3 to 12 days) during 2014 and 2015. In these workshops, regional circulation strategies were built, with support and advice for implementation over a period of twelve months.

In accordance with the above, an open call was made looking for 45 young artists and cultural managers from Colombia, Peru and Uruguay.

This project is part of the commitment of the Cultural Entrepreneurship Group of the Colombian Ministry of Culture to generate an adequate environment for social inclusion through culture, strengthening of cultural, youth and community enterprises, and the articulation of social and cultural organizations of three Latin American countries: Colombia (based on the experience of the Social Laboratories of Culture and Entrepreneurship - LASO of the Ministry of Culture), Peru (based on the experience of the National Culture Points Program of the Ministry of Culture),  and Uruguay (based on the project Cabildos Musicales Canarios of Music, Culture and Citizenship of the Intendance of Canelones).
