(Re)Building communities through Art.
Fiesta de Colores is a global art movement connecting international, national, and local artists with communities in Ecuador to share ideas, skills, and a common purpose. The movement began in response to the 2016 earthquake that left the coastal town of Canoa devastated and economically crippled. Fiesta de Colores gathered 25 artists from all over Ecuador and other parts of the world to lift the towns spirits and local economy by collaborating with earthquake survivors to create a living outdoor gallery of over 30 large scale murals. Since then, the movement has continued to grow and evolve, using art as a catalyst to bring people and artists together in communities all over Ecuador to engage in cultural exchange and creative public dialogue about identity, social justice and environmental issues.
