Hip hop singers, breakdance dancers and graffiti artist are part of this change.

For many years this place was under hard attacks from gangs and police. A military operations, together paramilitaries groups destroys and kills everybody who be out side home. After 3 days of war people came out to say no more. And since this dark time to now the people are working to change. In this tour you´ll walk in the street watching the graffities and listening stories from a local who tells, without censure, what really happened and what they are doing like a community.
The city works with comunity and develop a really innovative program. As this was to high for walking or have lot of steps, the comunity thought a solution: Electic stairs. Is the only place in the world with this kind of stairs in a neighborhood, thats why Medellin at 2013 won the contest City of Year.
