Ciudad Juarez has several problems: what is up to us, we have been studying and developing proposals to create a new alternative cultural tourism for the same factor that over the years, has been given little or no importance being that culture is a weapon constructive progress, development and social integration at all levels.

 
To get to Ciudad Juárez, there are three modes: road, either coming from Janos, Chihuahua or Samalayuca, Chihuahua; by aerial means, reaching the airport Abraham Gonzalez; finally crossing any of the international bridges. Any of these three media, present the traveler, tourist or visitor generally a bleak picture: by road and air, cherish a vision of a lost city, abandoned, like a huge aftermarket and iron thereof auto junkyards , this gives us, in contrast to the desert, the projection of a city alone, cold and reflects indifference from us.

 
When crossing the international bridges, we see whole streets and infrastructure damage, adding to the bridge of the Americas, an ad that dramatically demand that “we do not want more weapons” [NO MORE WEAPONS], suggesting to visitors that are enter an area where weapons, is like seeing a tree or another car likely will witness a bloody deed.

 

Colorwalk® have the idea of changing these scenarios; through walls intervention-cutural contextual importance in the PRONAF

 

Color Walk is a Initiative to establish a comprehensive route “Street Art” and collaborate in efforts to create a new cultural tourism to Ciudad Juarez.
