“Grupo Argos links to this artistic platform at a time when it is important to contribute to the reactivation of the cultural industries that have been affected by the impacts of the pandemic. This participation is part of our commitment to the creation of value in the communities of our country, as well as to make visible different cultural manifestations that we are sure contribute to the transformation and social construction”.
Leader of Creamos Valor Social
“This year the Festival will have its first virtual edition but also an offer strengthened and enriched with the lessons of the pandemic. The participation of Grupo Argos and the allies has been fundamental to give continuity to this project of urban culture that is giving new visions to our young people and that has allowed social and aesthetic transformations very important for Medellín and the country”.
Henry Arteaga – JKE Hip4 Leader
The participation of Grupo Argos in the Festival adds to other relevant efforts that the organization has made to mitigate the effects of the pandemic in Colombia and that have focused on the care of the life and health of its collaborators, a scheme of relief to its providers, assistance to the most vulnerable families and the strengthening of the country’s hospital capacity.
