Social inclusion in Otavalo

Beatrice Glow’s exchange will focus on social inclusion by leveraging new media art to tell stories that shift dominant narratives. She aims to work with a variety of community members, including Afro-Ecuadorian and Indigenous populations, to help pinpoint the ecosystem of challenges they face. Her workshops will be centered on understanding local public policy and the restoration of environmental and community health.
