Larco Museum is one of the most important museums in South America and is responsible for turning more than 5,000 years of civilization into a beautiful story by the use of the visual motifs that adorn their impressive collection. This session explores the intimate bond that existed between pre-Columbian societies and the natural world, and how they were represented in pottery, metals, stone, and textiles for posterity, open for us to explore.
In this session, Kennedy will discuss life in Quechua villages and how women are building sustainable futures for their families through the work of Awamaki, a non-profit that helps Andean artisan women start their own businesses. She will also discuss the rich artisanal and textile traditions and the role they play in Quechua culture and the modern economy.
