Project

In 2017, the National University of Costa Rica, through the Institute of Latin American Studies (Idela), the technical section of La Reforma  (CAI), and the Ministry of Justice and Peace of Costa Rica (MJP) assumed a role in raising awareness and improve the conditions of persons deprived of liberty.

Laboratory of Creativity

 "Based on three pillars: pedagogy, transformation, and freedom, the "Laboratory of Creativity" is much more than a poetry workshop in prison; it is, rather, a process of emancipatory education, which allows people to regain control of their life decisions and learn to live in peace and freedom." 

-Daniel Matul- Project Coordinator
