Describe the main features of the measure/initiative: 
Describa las principales características de la medida/iniciativa (800 palabras): Puerto Creativo is an audiovisual creation collective from Buenaventura, born out of a laboratory carried out by the Más Arte, Más Acción foundation and the Ministry of Culture, which brought together about 30 participants (mostly young people) for capacity-building sessions on media production in its different fields. The main topic of its products is related to the territory. The group aims at telling the story of the Colombian Pacific region with its own visual narrative style that allows them to build languages inspired by the territory itself, and to contribute to disperse the stigmas that have historically been related to this region. Puerto Creativo is currently made up of eight members. It carries out permanent collaborations with other creative groups in the country and its main objective is to promote the diverse aesthetic and cultural practices of the region, either through actions of social intervention, education and training or the use of technology. Our areas of action also include the management, production and dissemination of audiovisual and advertising products, and of content produced for mass media, institutions, companies or individuals as a support mechanism. In addition, we carry out research and other projects focused on artistic creation, technological innovation, social intervention and training. The transmission of knowledge is important for the group, hence the interest in working mainly with young people to help them build skills for audiovisual creation, and contributing to the creation and training of new audiences and the diffusion of audiovisual products produced in the Pacific region.
What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the measure/initiative?: 
Entrepreneurship activities that have allowed to create additional income for our members and the purchase of equipment. - One audiovisual production in process of completion, an audiovisual series and the co-production of six documentary shorts in collaboration with other local and regional initiatives. - Participation in the Cinematographic Council of Buenaventura, recently formed to influence public policy in favor of the development of the sector.
