From December 4th to the 17th, the British Council will participate in “Expoartesanías 2019” (stand 431, located in pavilion 3, first floor). The stand will exhibit the “Sowing Our Knowledge” programme, its approach and the work carried out with the Ette Ennaka, Misak, Yaruro, Cuiba, Puinave and Piaroa peoples. Visitors will witness first-hand the results of our support of their arts and crafts, whose cultural objects reflect their respective worldviews. This space will give them the chance to sell their products independently in the framework of a recognition of their cultural heritage.
The programme will also include the participation of representatives from the indigenous peoples from “Rueda de Saberes” (The Knowledge Wheel), where they will give live demonstrations of their particular crafts.
