For more than the last forty years Colombia been consumed by an ongoing internal armed conflict, the longest standing civil war on the planet. It has been calculated that over 3.500 massacres have taken place throughout the nation, making Colombia the country with the highest number of internally displaced persons for reasons of violence in the world. The inhabitants of the countryside are the ones who have suffered disproportionately in this conflict. They often find themselves forced to flee their native territories, generally to move to big cities or bigger towns, where they usually cannot find a job or even government support.
The main purpose of the 4 Rivers project is the creation of Historical Memory by means of a documentary-motion comic that employs the new narrative possibilities of the Internet, with the objective of promoting social consciousness about the armed conflict in Colombia through creation and innovation, thus giving voice to those most affected by the humanitarian crisis and connecting them to the rest of the world.

The structure of the 4 Rivers Project is based on two strands: the narrative and the documentary. In the narrative strand, we create a story based in real facts, where the violent events are narrated through the real-life characters' point of view. In this way we will be able to tell factual stories that are related to specific incidences of violence, and present them to the audience in a more creative and artistic way, without straying from the facts as they happened (are remembered?). This narrative strand is linked to the documentary strand, which shows content that was produced by Team 4 rivers content besides NGOs, researchers, study groups and institutions related to the topic, at the moment the armed actions took place, or as a reaction or later investigation of the particular events. The documentary content ranges from photography to cartographic information, even including eye-witeness testimonials and/or other forms of artistic creation.
