ÒRALE

Organisation for rural arts, learning & education

After her travels in Colombia and Morocco, Aurélie Andrès created Òrale which is an “Organization for rural arts, learning and education”, with the aim of enriching infrastructure, with the locals she meets.

 

"When I was younger, I wasn’t very academically inclined. It was later, when I began traveling the world that I learned a lot of what I know today, that is my real education. This is what I want to pass on to all these young people. I hope that when they look back at what we have painted together, that it will bring them joy and more creative ideas to try on their own. Hopefully these illustrations will remind them that they are capable of accomplishing great and beautiful things despite the lack of means.”

 

With Òrale, her main goal is to provide for the most basic educational needs of these children and adolescents, to enable them to study properly by making sure they have tables, chairs, notebooks and pens.


Through mural painting, educational and awareness-raising workshops on the environment are set up with the help of local actors.

And the creation of an educational book is underway to leave to each child a real support.

Associative project organized with the both organizations PADDLE PADDLE CHARITY PROJECT and COSTENO SOCIAL.

 

Until now, the future of young people on the Guachaca coast (Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta region) has been mainly limited to illegal occupations. Thanks to the local organization COSTENO SOCIAL, young people can participate in activities such as English lessons; art; yoga, theater; gardening; surf ... These various classes aim to orient them towards trade skills related to tourism which has recently developed in this isolated region. As part of this project, surfboards were donated to this local organization.

Four days of workshops around surfing, art and the environment were organized on site to celebrate the donation.

The POSCA brand provided markers during this workshop.
