History D1 Cultural Association
D1 is a non-profit cultural association, oriented towards social transformation and cultural promotion. It was founded by Peruvian dancer Vania Masías in 2005 in Lima, Peru. This project began with the ambition to train leaders in young people from marginal sectors of Peru. Today, this project is an institution in which around 7,000 young people are trained each year, becoming one of the main successful references in the use of the arts as a tool for social transformation in our country. It is estimated that to date, it has had a very positive impact on more than 170 thousand people directly.
