“Youth Workers and the Creative Arts in Colombia: Resisting Neoliberalism”

Kate Faris, a master’s student in the Department of International Studies at the University of Oregon, will talk about her research project in Colombia. Her project is an interdisciplinary investigation into an alternative, arts-based form of resistance to Colombian neoliberal policies using the case study of Fundación Proyecto de Vida, a nonprofit organization in the city of Bogotá, Colombia. She argues that the arts-based program is essential in breaking cycles of violence with internally displaced youth that are otherwise perpetuated by the lack of government social programs. Her research documents how the arts-based program actively strengthens the community by aiding in the social and psychological development of youth who have experienced prolonged trauma. Faris is the recipient of a 2012 CLLAS Graduate Student Summer Research Grant.
