The heart of this workshop is the rotation of teachers – in this way, the artistic productions are seen from a variety of perspectives, which helps artists-in-training strengthen their commitment with their own creations and helps them engage in critical self-analysis of their pieces.

This is both my calling and the message I try to convey as Cultural Manager of Cazadores de Arte, as well as in my collective and individual artistic productions.Viviana Romay

Nevertheless, I also happen to believe this poetic force might be of great importance for us, that it may indeed become the restorative force that helps us transform our world beyond the limits of our finite essence.Myriam Jawerbaum
