After about seven months of planning and curating content, H360 took a group of about 30 civic-social entrepreneurs, activists, business people and researchers in order to participate in the fourth edition of the Biennial of the Americas in Denver, Colorado. The event’s theme was focused on pinpointing tendencies in the fields of social entrepreneurship, art and culture in the continent while bringing countries of both hemispheres closer together.
“As one of the curators, H360 brought a lot of diversity to the Biennial this year – people from several countries in Latin America that are references in their fields. Our goal was to expand the dialogue about civic-social entrepreneurship, new technologies and citizen engagement. I believe that it was an excellent experience to all of us,” said Piero Bonadeo, vice-president of the Humanitas360 Institute.
Among the H360’s guests were Mundano (Pimp My Carroça), Joice Toyota (Vetor Brasil and Lemann Foundation Alumni) Bernardo Guillamón (IADB), Raull Santiago (Coletivo Papo Reto), Ethan Zuckerman (MIT Center for Civic Media), Paulo Rogério (Vale do Dendê), Fabio Silva (Porto Social), Juliana Cardoso (Lemann Foundation Alumni), Caio Tendolini (Update), Alejandra Izquierdo (Café Anei), Bruno Aracaty (Colab:Re), Germano Guimarães (Grupo Tellus), Paulina Villa and Carlos Jaramillo (Ruta N), and Mauricio Garcia (Cannalivio).
During the four days of the festival, the program was filled with panel discussions, workshops, talks and presentations, art exhibitions and musical attractions.
