MUSIC AND ARTS ACADEMY
The Music and Arts Academy’s main objective is to offer youth a different alternative through culture and art.
Mision Peace to the Nations foundation has supported the artistic, cultural, spiritual, moral and intellectual training of Cali’s people from every social level without distinction of race, gender, religious orientation or nationality and, with the sole purpose to help children, young people and adults who are victims of external conditions that threaten society –amongst which conditions we find unemployment, violence, criminality, and poverty to mention some-
One of the most important issues for us is to show youth a different alternative in life through arts and culture, focusing on constant training respecting the clear principles of coexistence, human rights and value training that permits the creation of new realities through creativity in visual, sound and on set productions that promote personal growth and a benefit to the community in general.
Keeping in mind the need much of our youth has to grow within a better environment than the one they’ve been surrounded by, while they intend to become a source of income for their families, we meet the need to change the methods so far developed in a four practical levels of training, so we can provide the students with a technical title once they’ve mastered their training, thus balancing the theoretical knowledge and training until developing excellently in the fields of arts and culture.
