Ecuador: Youth in Ambato Get Their Own Venue for Art, Culture and Education

Close to the celebration of International Youth Day, Ecuadorian youth from Ambato are happy they can express their own thoughts in a space of tolerance and mutual respect, after three long years of hard work, writes Gabo of Ambato Loco [es]. With the creation of a “Casa de la Juventud” (House of/for Youth), these young people will have a place for entertainment and education: the venue includes a playroom, a film library, a practice room for bands, a room dedicated to research and two audiovisual recording studios.
