Community Arts Residence and Cultural Exchange Colombia’s Coffee Zone 2022

In 2022, the Community Arts Residence and Cultural Exchange took place in Colombia’s coffee zone. Under the theme “embracing peace,” residents were invited to explore new facilitation techniques, exchange knowledge with local artists, community members, and arts organizations, and create new connections to explore both individual and collective creation. In collaboration with schools and neighbourhoods, residents were involved in the creation of two outdoor murals that celebrate the richness of Quimbayan culture, promote an appreciation of the natural surroundings, and added beauty and colour to spaces cherished by the community.
