Bernard Faucono is a multi-disciplinary project that offers inspiring and empowering skills for youth. Their monthly workshop program exposes kids in Coco Solo, a community in Colon, Panama, to digital photography and media literacy, creative writing and sculpture, urban agriculture and more. The main purpose is to create a platform for the exchange of valuable skills, build self-confidence and motivation among the community, strengthen education and establish an alternative outlet for self-expression. Through these skill-shares, the youth of the community are taught practical means by which they can effect and inspire positive change, embracing the idea that a community's ability to self-represent allows for long-lasting positive change.
