Ana María Parra 

An arts lover with a transformative mission

I am the Communications Director of Hermanos Brothers, a Colombian company promoting social transformation through the arts. I’m a lover of theater, video art, and other artistic expressions. I firmly believe that cultural experiences play important roles in our efforts to realise a sustainable society. My work is based on the conviction that touching people emotionally through culture can be transformative and at least as effective in raising awareness and changing people’s behaviour as appealing to their intellectual side.

Lucas Sánchez M

An artistic projects manager inspiring ethical reflection 

I am a co-director at Hermanos Brothers - a creative bureau in Colombia using artistic expressions to facilitate innovation and learning. I’m very interested in inspiring and triggering ethical reflections, and hopefully changes in other persons’ behaviour, through sensory, holistic, and arts-based communication experiences. I am happy to be able to do this through combining music making, social entrepreneurship, cultural conspiracy, and artistic projects management.

Martin Sánchez Martinez

A social transformer working with the power of images and sounds

I am the Arts Director at Hermanos Brothers - a creative bureau in Colombia using artistic expressions to facilitate innovation and learning. I work with the power of images and sounds. I try to make use of them to tune awareness towards the multiple interconnections in our realities, helping to raise the question on how to transform both our cognitive and perceptual frames of interpretation, as well as encouraging a deeper and more empathic relationship with our planet and souls.

Andrés Felipe Jiménez

A creative leader using arts for social transformation 

I am a co-director at Hermanos Brothers - a creative bureau in Colombia using artistic expressions to facilitate innovation and learning. I have a passion for making the world a happy place for all through music and the arts. I’m tired of inequality among people and with our planet and I’m committed to do something about it. If you do what you really enjoy doing, you can make social transformation happen. I am happy to work with a great team, which makes it possible for me to do just that.

Mariana Gómez Soto

An anthropologist supporting local struggles for land and resources

I am a project coordinator for the Gaia Amazonas Foundation and the regional coordinator for Latin America for the network Yes to life, No to Mining. With a background in anthropology and biology I work to establish relationships with indigenous and peasant communities to strengthen cultural practices, local traditional knowledge related to natural resources and land use in the framework of conservation strategies. I love nature and I’m committed to demonstrating that a shift of paradigm for humanity is possible and that we can inhabit our planet in a more resilient and harmonic way.
