Construction and Fitting-out of the “Culture House”
We support the initiative of the community to build a “culture house”, where they can do all kinds of cultural activities, both artistic and about the history of the Pomis Jiwet community. This is a Chorote community from the Pilcomayo of Salta, wikina wos (“people from the north wind”). It will be the place for rehearsals and recordings of the band Ampey, teaching and training workshops for young people who want to learn to play all kinds of instruments.
The community's effort to achieve such an ambitious and challenging goal, along with the foundation support, the volunteers who participated in the project and our sponsors, helped us obtain the partial financing granted by the Fondo Nacional de las Artes, and this project is a reality today.
We built a material house with self-supporting thermal insulating roofs, which protect the recording and rehearsal room, its instruments and spaces for training and teaching of the culture of this community. The room, in turn, has rubber tiles to improve the acoustics and keep it suitable for instruments and electronic equipment.
Once the sound recording and editing equipment is installed, training workshops will be held for young people who want to learn about sound editing.
