Platohedro is a non-profit organization that functions as a collaborative creative platform based in Medellín, Colombia. Since 2004 we have been dedicated to artistic creation and experimentation, to continuous research on free culture and self-learning. Through practice and advocacy of a common well-being for all based on the indiginous philosophy of Good Living and Good Knowing.
We have been working in the city of Medellín for more than fifteen years, intervening in important social processes, such as the defense for Human Rights and the liberation of knowledge, through workshops, public interventions and networking; training children, youth and adults in the production of audiovisual content, the appropriation of technology and communication.
We offer continuous support to the life projects of children, adolescents and youth, in efforts to try to disassociate them from the dynamics of generalized violence, establishing a close link with the community. Our trajectory in this work is recognized in the artistic, educational and cultural sectors at a local, regional, national and international level.

Lugar a dudas
As its name suggests, lugar a dudas (a place for doubts) is a space dedicated to the reflection and critical thinking about artistic practices and the intricate world in which we currently live. It is a space that advocates to promote discussion, trial and error as a laboratory committed to stimulate knowledge, facilitate the development of creative processes and, encourage the community to interact through the artistic practices. Its areas include a documentation center, exhibition spaces, residency program and an educational program. The way of being and doing respond to the use of the space by visitors. More than develop specific activities, lugar a dudas propose the daily use of the different spaces of the house as meeting points to chat, debate or just to be.
Located in San José, Costa Rica,TEOR/éTica is a private, non-profit, independent project, dedicated to the research and diffusion of contemporary artistic practices. Both its name and its reason for being imply theory, ethics and aesthetics. Throughout more than two decades of work, TEOR/éTica has consolidated itself as one of the most dynamic and purposeful cultural projects in the region, recognized internationally for promoting the development of the arts and fostering new ways of thinking and thinking itself critically. This project operates as a platform for research and dissemination of contemporary artistic practices, with an emphasis on Central America and the Caribbean. Since its foundation, a wide group of agents has participated in the construction of TEOR/éTica, permeating it with their particular interests and practices, thus generating a dynamic organization, interested in looking at and questioning the place from where it operates.TEOR/éTica aims to create spaces for doubt, debate and the generation of thought relevant to the region. For this, several strategies have been developed, considering art as a common space from where to generate study and seek other ways of being together to learn and build collectively. We work on different lines of action that intersect and complement each other to provide conversation spaces –symbolic and physical– about contemporary artistic practices, in dialogue with social and political global realities.
