Estuario Resident Artists 

On Friday, June 4 and Saturday, June 5 2021; Resident Artists Juan Climent and Zuleyka Alejandro completed the final workshops for their project: Creative Recycling at Falansterio. This project consisted of the creation of furniture and artifacts with paper mache and cardboard, through which the artists taught members of the Falansterio community the reutilization of solid waste through the use of creativity. The workshops were attended by six community youth and their parents. See the gallery HERE.
