El Hormiguero (The Ant Farm)


Have I mentioned I live two lives? To foster an open mind, I prioritize spending time outside the United States. In Medellín, Colombia, I collaborate with El Hormiguero, a collective of artists, designers, and environmental and social justice workers.

For more than a decade, this motley crew has been fighting the good fight through community arts initiatives, public workshops, neighborhood outreach, design consulting, and human rights campaigns. From amplifying the voice of discriminated and displaced populations to facilitating youth mural-making, this group of intensely passionate humans puts everything they have towards the endless fight for basic equality in Colombia.
