The event was also attended by Andres Camilo Barrios, the Communicator who will hold a workshop on “Photography and digital marketing”.
In a climate of fraternity and synodality, which favors the spontaneity of the interventions, the participants continue in the process of drawing up the CINAB 2022-2027 Communication Plan, to create more and more educational-communicative environments that generate life.
