Local Involvement

Artists may also develop a workshop for kids and the local community during their residency. We encourage the idea of ​​cultural exchange. The artist can teach something, and vice versa. For example an interesting product can be developed with the ancestral knowledge of the local people, such as working with weavers and learning about natural dyes and its techniques.

We are located in the Utcubamba valley which means "cotton valley".
