[Who we are]
Casa B is a non-profit organisation founded in 2012 in Bogotá (Colombia) which has since then been working as an independent cultural space in the district of Belén.
We are a interdisciplinary group of people who work and learn together in order to create an innovative proposal of alternative education and to achieve a sustainable development in our neighbourhood.
[Where we are]
THE DISTRICT OF BELÉN
Casa B is located in the historical and colourful district of Belén, in central Bogotá, but for decades it has been neglected by public institutions and stigmatized as a no-go-area by the rest of the citizens.
[What do we do?]
OUR ONGOING PROJECTS
We experiment with arts, science and sports to promote the rights of children and young people through the recovery of memory and by constructing a future in community.
More about our projects on our website and facebook page.
[Why we need your help]
SEVERE ROOF DAMAGE AND SAFETY CRISIS
Casa B has been built in 1905. The colonial style house has adobe walls and the roof is made out of wood, bamboo, rack and clay tile.
After over half a century of humidity and leakages the roof’s structure is collapsing. The bamboo has become rotten and long term leakages weakened the adobe walls, which carry the heavy and run-down roof structure.
Out of safety reasons, architects and engineers urgently recommend to replace the whole roof structure in order to be able to continue our work with the community.
SAVE OUR ROOF! SAVE THE FUTURE OF CASA B!
