Through the language of color, where the cool colors contain the problems and the warm colors the solutions, we advance from unequality through stereotypes towards education, justice and finally hope. The main image  shows a mature woman, breaking the chains of oppression and advancing towards consciousness and natural wisdom. In the center a balanced scale, with the symbols of woman and man.

This mural was also sponsored by Unesco Etxea and Garapen Bidean, 2 NGO´s that are working on events celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Resolution 1325 Women weaving together Peace, a project whose objective is to publicize the role women play in the construction of peace.

There are more than just two colors, is a prize-winning short documentary film created in a mini filmmaking-workshop directed by Sandra Santos with the participation of the youth employee: Tamara Moreno García.

An eclectic team of people from different backgrounds, ages, and walks of life, with almost no artistic training, climb the scaffold to paint a builiding. They´re using art as a tool on their way to awareness about Gender Equality. Sure enough, they discover that there are more than just two colors.
