Discovering Medellín, Colombia: A Guided Tour with Pablo Ospina

Born and raised in Medellín, Colombia, professional tour guide, Pablo Ospina, took us around to experience and understand part of the transformation that has been taking place in his hometown. Although this event has passed, you can still watch the video and learn about the various artists, street performers, community members and activists that are at the heart of Comuna 13.

Minneapolis is a sister city to Eldoret, Kenya. As such, our second stop on our global tour was to two different locations in Kenya! We visited the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Nanyuki. There, we got to virtually meet the last two northern white rhinos and hear more about the organization’s conservation efforts. To close out this voyage, we enjoyed a delicious Kenyan meal brought to us by Chef Raphael out of Nairobi!

We kicked off this series exploring and participating in various events throughout Mexico. We discovered the cultural, artistic, and natural history museums in Querétaro. We delved into a five-day festival featuring Mexican artists in the realms of theater, music, opera, and the arts, and closed out this session tuning in to the amazing percussion group, Tambuco.

Since 2016, Project Success has taken an annual trip to Washington, DC to tour Howard University and visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC). In 2019, the trip was canceled due to COVID-19 — so we worked with our incredible partners to create virtual experiences for you to explore Washington, DC from your own home. Enjoy!
