Museums and ChillMuseums and Chill – Amazonian museums and their communities

Museums and Chill is available on Spotify, Google Podcasts, and Apple Podcast!

In this conversation, we welcome Paola Escobar and Álvaro Gundín from ‘Hecho con corazón’ – Artisans women weave their memories through the forests of the Amazon.

The project aims to contribute to strengthening the link between Amazonian museums in Bolivia, Peru and Ecuador and the communities of women artisans who make utilitarian and ritual crafts. Amazonian craftswomen are the guardians of the living heritage that is transmitted from generation to generation within their worldview and culture.
