Brief description and main aims
Fundación COMPA – Teatro Trono aims to improve the living conditions for children and young people of El Alto through individual and collective development and social transformation through art and culture designed to restore and build visions of equality, complementarity, participation, community democracy and solidarity.
In Bolivia, especially in El Alto, there is a high political participation that has managed to transform the national political history. However it is common that the changes have profound limits that do not hold up over time.
The oligarchies have always been regenerated by returning to holding power. There is lack of innovative proposals to exercise participation beyond mere protest and lack of practices to build a democratic participatory culture, sustained by the protagonists of the daily exercise ofthese social actions. We believe that art and education can raise along with society, new forms of political action, new citizens exercising a democratic culture born in communities (neighborhoods, schools), and with the participation of children and youth. An everyday political practice, committed to the future, which rises in today.
The policy must change; participation should explore new paths, finding new ways. We believe this is an urgent basic need. Building the future is a daily and community art. School, politics, community, social transformation.
