What will you do?

Do you want to know the history of Cusqueño art? What is syncretism and how did the fusion of Andean and Western culture happen? We will tell you the story. Then we will give you a Pucará bull, and we will teach you the famous technique of colonial Cusquenian gilding, where we will use bronze, copper and aluminum sheets, and you will also work with different materials and traditional and contemporary techniques. While we have a coffee or an infusion, 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 piece you created, and we will give you a bag of coffee from local coffee growers. For the children we will have a bar of organic chocolate, created by local women producers, who contribute to education and gender equity in the world of coffee in Cusco.
We will also tell you about how Totemiq, our Peruvian art collective, helps empower local women, creating job opportunities and helping to preserve the 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.
