Awakening a Culture of Conservation
ArtCorps and Ecologic Development Fund invite you to join us for a spectacular visual journey and learn about how we are working together to protect natural resources and Mayan culture in Totonicapan, Guatemala.
Pick up a copy of Wisdom of the Rocky Hillsides, a collection of stories from K’iche’ Maya oral tradition illustrated by our Young Leaders in Conservation.
Take a spectacular journey through the photography of ArtCorps Artist Isabel Carrió to witness community efforts to preserve the environmental and cultural heritage of the Guatemalan highlands. Learn more about the ArtCorps-EcoLogic creative collaboration.
You will also have the opportunity to participate in a community art activity with ArtCorps Alumnae Andrea Shigeko Landin, win door prizes such as delicious Taza chocolate sustainably sourced from Central America or a $100 gift certificate to Ole Mexican Grill in Cambridge, and sign up with Renew Boston for a free home energy assessment.
Free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. All ages welcome. We hope to see you on May 16th!
Photo exhibit made possible thanks to generous support from The Finer Image in Danvers.
