Escritores (writers on the street)

The Office of Hopes, Dreams, and Fears will be housed in the White House beginning September 2. This project involves gathering hopes, dreams, and fears from people that we encounter on the street during our execution of the project. Beginning September 2 The CWHwill also host several Escritos, or Writers, outside the Collective White House. Escritos can be found on a side street of Plaza Botero (the plaza of the Museum of Antioquia) typing the letters for those who cannot. The purpose of these letters are broad but familiar: family members afar, legal and business transactions. The Escritos translate the thoughts of the ordinary Colombian, they are authors and poets for hire. They can put into words the intimate thoughts of a lover or the hardship of the displaced person. The Escritos will sit outside theCWH and type the hopes, dreams, and fears of the people in Plaza Botero. The finished letters will be stamped and submitted to the various libraries and institutions.
