What will you do?

Do you want to know the history of Cusquenian art? What is syncretism and how did the fusion of Andean and Western culture happen? We will tell you the story. We will give them a Pucara bull, and we will teach them the famous technique of the colonial Cusquenian gilding, where we will use bronze, copper and aluminum sheets, and we will also work with different materials and traditional and contemporary techniques. While we have a cup of coffee or tea, we will talk about the importance of the Pucara bulls in the local popular culture. At the end of the workshop you will take home the pieces you created. We will also tell you about how Totemiq, our Peruvian art collective, helps empower local women, creating job opportunities and supporting the preservation of living culture in Peru.

Learn about host Totemiq / Berenice

I am a visual artist and cultural manager. In 2016 I founded the creative laboratory of Cusquenian artists Totemiq and the project Totemiq Experiences, dedicated to create Peruvian pieces of contemporary art and design. My proposal is linked to concepts of syncretism or miscegenation, and enhancement of popular art and traditional techniques of artistic production in Cusco. I also offer tourist experiences aligned with local art, uniting tradition, contemporaneity and living culture.
