Art and Participatory Action Research

Who we are

Casa Tres Patios (C3P) is a non-profit foundation and center for contemporary thought that promotes social justice through research, pedagogy and artistic practice. Since 2007, by developing a transdisciplinary approach, C3P combines artistic practices, critical pedagogy and the social sciences to support the community in areas such as citizenship, human rights, gender, social reintegration, peacebuilding and organizational development.


Its programs have benefited more than 3,000 girls, boys and young people, the LGTBI community, ex-FARC combatants, municipal employees and inmates in the prison system in Medellín and the surrounding areas.

Our work


Public talks and lectures



In 2006, Tony Evanko and Santiago Vélez, founded Casa Tres Patios (C3P) in the city of Medellín, Colombia. Originally conceived as an alternative space, an art laboratory and an exhibition space where local artists could experiment, develop and exhibit the results of those experiments, it quickly became an important reference point for the city's artistic and cultural scene.
