The “red district” of Bogotá, also called, the high impact zone is the only area in the city where prostitution is legal. Following the example of Amsterdam this is an attempt from the local administration to consolidate inclusive processes, have more control over the situation and establish a better grasp of prostitution, an activity that is present in most medium and large cities around the world. It becomes necessary to walk this area to create your own opinion on how well or not things are going with this process.

The history of Colombia (The New Granada) is a very particular case even in Hispanic America. The routes designed for you to know our heritage are aimed specifically to the Colonial period, especially on the XVII and XVIII centuries. The Colonial Museum and the Museum-Church of Saint Claire save the most important collections of our colonial times. Those museums have several kinds of items, such as: paintings, sculptures, objects and the architecture in which is contained these collections. By observing the items through the designed routes and by listening to the historical talks, the main objective is to offer the basis of our historical knowledge so that you can build up a general image of different aspects of Colombian culture and society.

Style blending: A head change in “La PeluQuería” Number of hours

La PeluQuería is not a common hairdresser’s, it’s a place where a haircut becomes an artistic practice. Unlike the traditional "beauty" salons in this place there are no mirrors or celebrity magazines, instead we find an irreverent group of women who are willing to change your head. It is also a good place for a coffee or a beer while reading some Colombian independent art publications. We want to suggest you a change of style guided by the advice of these art-hairdressers and crossed by an exhibition of images speaking about the use of dress in Bogota. Meanwhile, Melissa Paeres, founder of the space will tell her story about the project.

Governments in Bogotá, as in the rest of Colombia, have been avoiding for a long time the formulation of concrete policies regarding waste uses and recycling. Meanwhile an informal sector coming from the poorest areas of the city has been living from collecting potentially useful materials from what general citizens had already considered garbage by throwing them away or setting them on the streets. Today there are more than twelve thousand people living from this activity and around sixty thousand (Their Families) depending on their work. We would like to introduce you the social and political processes of the (ARB) Cooperative Association of Bogota’s Recyclers. As accompanying one journey of waste collection, stockpiling and selling in the buy-back centers guided by local “recyclers” who are now working in defense of the recycling sector aware of the social and environmental services given daily by them to the whole community. About 40% of the value will go towards a donation on uniforms and other immediate needs to the Cooperative.
