Promoting art and territorial culture

By: Judith Robleto

From the student welfare area of URACCAN, at its University Campus New Guinea, a workshop on basic drawing has been developed, with the accompaniment of teacher Josefina Connolly.

Participants included mostly children and children who were children of URACCAN workers, who support the initiative that motivates the creativity or painting and drawing skills of the participants.

For teacher Connolly, the day workshop aims to "know the skills, and talents, as well as the importance of promoting art and culture," she said

The workshop was facilitated by the young artist Axell Molina and takes place in greeting to the International Day of Indigenous Women and is accompanied by a traditional dance workshop where the young people who make up the dance group of this studio house participate.
