In 2016, Alta Mane equipped Vientos Culturales with a vehicle to pursue and expand its artistic activities in favour of the children living in three of the most marginalized colonies of Tuxtla Gutiérrez (Chiapas, Mexico). The association has been working there since 1996, helping children develop their creativity, intelligence and self-esteem through art and life skills. In addition, Vientos Culturales aims to promote values such as honesty, respect, work, study and service among the children, their parents and the community.
Approximately 240 children, between the ages of 6 and 12, living in extremely vulnerable conditions (alcoholic parents, violence, poverty) in the marginalized areas of Tuxtla Gutiérrez.
Vientos Culturales was founded in Tuxtla Gutiérrez in 1996 to challenge disadvantaged children and youth through the arts. The association contributes to the development of children and youth by stimulating their creativity, broadening their knowledge, improving their critical thinking and promoting positive values.
Fondation Alta Mane supported Vientos Culturales in 2014 and, since 2015, in partnership with Fondazione Alta Mane Italia. For further information regarding the project Arte al Sol y al Viento visit the following link.
