Description

Cada año HAWAPI convoca a artistas, académicos e individuos socialmente comprometidos de diversas disciplinas para generar obras e intervenciones en los espacios públicos.

A través de estas actividades, HAWAPI propone descentralizar la cultura contemporánea e incentivar a los artistas a ampliar los límites de su práctica a través de la investigación y del contacto directo con las comunidades más afectadas por las problemáticas actuales en el Perú.

////ENGLISH////

HAWAPI is an independent art event, which takes artists to remote and often overlooked locations in Peru to create site-specific public interventions, murals and performances.

Each year we bring together a group of artists, academics and socialy engaged individuals from a diverse range of practices to create public interventions in locations affected by specific social, political or environmental issues.

Through these activities HAWAPI aims to decentralize contemporary Peruvian culture and promote a platform for meaningful dialogue about complex contemporary issues on a local and national level, by encouraging artists to push the boundaries of their practice through research and a direct engagement with the communities most affected by these issues.
