Social Inclusion
Sharing oral histories through an AR mural

YUYAY’s “Untold Stories” aims to change the collective imagination and reduce the cultural gap between the kichwa and mestizo population in Otavalo through a series of stories which illustrate the connection of two social groups in a single historical moment. The group interviewed former workers of the San Pedro Factory, which employed native workers under harsh conditions to produce woven textiles, and used the stories as the basis of a mural with AR triggers. The pilot project was developed in the Otavalango Living Museum, the site of the former San Pedro Factory.
