Children are often encouraged to get good grades at school. They're considered smart if they excell in STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). But do we celebrate and encourage them equally when they embrace their creativity by writing a story, a poem or a song?

We believe that it is important to celebrate the arts and promote creativity, develop a love for writing, and build confidence and trust in their own voice from an early age.

Inspired by The Story Pirates (www.storypirates.org) we are launching Capitanes de Historias in Bogotá.

Capitanes de Historias seeks to awaken and boost children's creative potential. This will motivate them to write and help them grasp the power of their words and the impact they can have in our society.

How do we do it? It's easy:

1. We go to schools and deliver writing wokshops.

2. Kids write stories.

3. We transform these stories into theater plays and showcase them in front of the whole school.

4. Kids see their stories transformed into plays performed by professional actors, and are celebrated and recognized by their peers. They get excited and write more stories!

We are launching this crowdfunding campaign and aim to raise $ USD 6000 (+10% for the Ideame fee) so we can pilot the project in four schools in Bogotá in 2017. We'll be working with a group of professional actors, writers, and educators to design and run the workshops. The goal of our pilot is to gather feedback so we can adjust the workshops. We will also be documenting the work we do so we can pitch it to potential partners and schools.

To keep you posted, we will post updates on social media (@capitanesdehistorias) and share the stories written by children during our workshops. After completing the pilot phase, we will share a video about the whole experience.

In the long term, we'd like to develop a model that allows us to have schools with resources subsidise the costs of running the workshops in schools that have less resources. This will allow Capitanes de Historias to be sustainable while reaching all children, regardless of income level.

If we don't reach the 100% of the funding goal, we will use it to do the following:

  • With the 10%

    With USD $500 (or COP $1.5 million) +10% (for the Ideame fee) we will we will have enough funds to launch one of the four workshops we have planned in one classroom at one of our partner schools. We will document it and analyze the feedback we get in order to improve future workshops.

  • With the 25%

    With USD $1500 (or COP $4,5 million) +10% (for the Ideame fee) we will have enough funds to launch one of the four workshops (in several classes of one school) we have planned. We will document it and analyze the feedback we get in order to improve future workshops.

  • With the 50%

    With USD $3000 (or COP $9 million) +10% (for the Ideame fee) we will have enough funds to launch two of the four workshops we have planned. We will document them and analyze the feedback we get in order to improve future workshops.

  • With the 75%

    With USD $4500 (or COP $13,5 million) +10% (for the Ideame fee) we will have enough funds to launch three of the four workshops we have planned. We will document them and analyze the feedback we get in order to improve future workshops.
