Artist talk and networking in Tuluá 9 de Abril

tulua charla

On Wednesday I was invited to give a talk in Tuluá, a town about two hours form Cali in the Cauca Valley, Colombia. The idea was to share my work and the concepts behind 34South|61North with local artists, musicians and actors. This was to open up a debate on how to improve networking between artists in Tuluá with the eventual goal of opening an arts centre in the town. Once the space is opened the artists will encourage local youths to pursue creative pastimes instead of entering into crime and repeating the town’s violent history.

The residents were happy to have me there as they want to organise exchanges with international artists who can bring different perspectives to the arts in the town and forge cultural interchanges. Over the next months I will be assisting with ideas, information and contacts.
