Most Beloved Memory at ArteSumapaz:
“I became a vegan chef for the community for almost two weeks. Playing with foods and creating meals for the hacienda inhabitants gave me purpose and awakened my mothering side, my nature_rooted powers and allowed my creative juices to flow and merge with the fruits of the earth.”
“It was incredible to spend time with a community of artists hidden in the heart of nature, it felt like being born again within the giant legs of the mountains, held within green breasts and dreamy clouds.”
