Chotuna Inaugurated

Our latest SPI project site Chotuna has been inaugurated!

The day saw a number of workshops on ‘artisanal branding’ directed by Carmen García, Isabel Hidalgo and Martin Razzuri, professors of Graphic Design from the Art Department at Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Perú (PUCP).

In attendance were the vibrant local cooperative of women weavers who quickly got to work making the artisan center their own. Products from the center will be produced for sale soon with the proceeds returning back to the community of Chotuna to alleviate the cycle of poverty and site looting there.
