Project in collaboration with Olga Olivares and Sabine Offerlind Thunberg.
We believe in the importance and power of sharing knowledge, experiences, and techniques from creatives to creatives across geographical borders. This project’s purpose is an intercultural creative exchange between three female designers from Konstfack and local artisans and designers in Oaxaca and Mexico City.
We identified Oaxaca and Mexico City as our sites because of their rich, yet underexposed, craft and artisan traditions, specifically within textile, food, ceramic, and leather crafts. This first research phase aimed to not only inform the development of our practices but also foster the beginning of a constant collaboration between creatives in Mexico and Sweden.
The research was funded by Estrid Ericsons Stiftelse.
