VISIBLE MEMORY FOUNDATION
We improve lives
Founded in 2010, Visible Memory Foundation works with our members and volunteers to help families in need and especially people who have been victims of extreme violence. In addressing this reality, we are guided by a vision of social justice. We believe in the protection and promotion of human rights, we believe in building a society where it is possible to provide opportunities for everyone and thus allow new generations to reach their full potential.

WHAT WE DO
A helping hand
The Visible Memory Foundation promotes changes in language, imagination and attitudes that have historically fostered all kinds of violent behaviors in human behavior. We believe that it is possible to develop a social intelligence, in which people have a renewed awareness of the impact of their actions, as well as new citizen habits for conflict management where peaceful conflict resolution, restoration and otherness converge. We strive to inspire people through educational programs and sharing economy services. We support social leaders and artists. We prioritize supporting artist-driven projects and organizations that include deep and meaningful engagement with communities. We are convinced that art and innovation are fundamental tools to achieve real and tangible changes that allow us to restore our reality.
FIELD OF ACTION
Authors, visual artists and musicians who use their talent and critical spirit to investigate,
educate and make visible issues of social and humanitarian interest.
Visible Memory Foundation works to provide effective and lasting solutions to many different problems that affect our community. Our main causes are those that many neglect. The goal is to fight indifference and we would love for you to become part of that change today.
One of our goals is to ensure that the most vulnerable groups are safe and can meet their basic needs. With your generous donations and your volunteer support, we have the ability to keep our work in permanent action. Contact us for more information.
HUMAN RIGHTS & CONFLICT MITIGATION
We promote respect for Human Rights
The social groups and vulnerable communities of the planet must be the point of reference for the development of any type of initiative guided for the recovery of dignity and the beginning of new system of human development.
The problems and conflicts of any nature extend over them, in most cases, without any kind of protection or international surveillance that denounce the violation of human rights.
Based on them, we develop projects that promote awareness and the fundamental knowledge to build a future full of humanity. The actions designed point a route in the construction of a culture of peace that promotes citizen participation, respect and the peaceful solution of conflicts.
The climate crisis is a reality
Within this line are lies the efforts to build a visual fund that allows to preserve through images the environmental wealth of the planet. We intent to generate awareness of good use of water and all environmental resources that are currently threatened
by human irrationality.
We Contribute to the dissemination of ancestral memory, visible and intangible, and consolidate an Education for Sustainable Development (EDS) that allows us to internalize the concepts of resignification of living in a sustainable, fair and full world.
ARTISTIC CREATIVITY AND
No more wasted talents!
Art feeds the spirit and that is why the Visible Memory Foundation promotes different options so that young people can access resources and virtual classes online to develop their artistic skills through free scholarships financed by our sponsors.
In principle, we support children and young people who demonstrate skills in music and photography, but who do not have the financial means to perfect themselves in their instrument or discipline, or who for geographical reasons are unable to access artistic education opportunities.
For Visible Memory Foundation it is essential to be able to extend its learning methodology to young talents, so that they can expand their possibilities and creative knowledge.
For us it is very important to have the right partners to successfully complete all projects. We invite you to join and contribute to our purpose: stop the cycle of violence, work so that there are no more wasted talents and build a better present for the new generations.
"The victims of violence, those who did not have a second chance, demand more hours of forgiveness and less minutes of silence."
The "Otherness Expedition" proposes an itinerant artistic exhibition developed from a concept known as “immersive art” and subjective experience. This expedition revolves around the peaceful resolution of conflicts, the power of forgiveness, the promotion of nonviolence through a photographic exhibition, new technologies and a practical seminar.
The proposal intends to visit, in the beginning, the communities affected by acts of extreme violence (shootings) in the recent history of the United States. The route of the expedition in its pilot phase includes a city in each of the following states: Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Virginia, New York, Connecticut, Minnesota, Nebraska, Colorado, California, Arizona and Texas.
VIRTUAL MUSIC SCHOOL
We Tune Talents
Visible Memory Foundation has developed an innovative pedagogy of music courses. Our methodology allows students to progress effectively, enjoy the lessons, and advance at their own pace. We believe in virtuality but the relationship with a live teacher for all our classes is a priority. We offer complementary videos but our strength lies in the effort to build a direct parents-teacher-student relationship that supports a personalized training. In this way, a pedagogy of creative freedom is developed and with tangible results.
WILD PHOTOS EXPEDITION
“AGUACERO. Portraits of the planet
that they called blue”
The intention of the project “AGUACERO. Portraits of the planet that they called blue ”, is to make a photo documentary that allows the community to become aware of the enormous fragility that characterizes the world's water wealth. To clarify the concept of photo documentary, the words of Francisco Birri can be taken up again: “It is simply going out with a camera and an audio recorder to meet the reality of the environment, to talk, to photograph faces, people, places, animals, plants but above all problems of the same habitat ”. With the result of this research we intend to offer viewers a visual and scientific sample of what we are obliged to deliver to future generations. Our goal is to create awareness, modify habits and teach those who still think that nature takes care of itself, that environmental ethics is more than a concept, it is a responsibility.
"Goodness is the language that the deaf can hear and the blind can see."
