Art can do many things. It can depict exactly and impart knowledge. It connects and creates space. And it can help to raise our awareness of the rainforest and fragile ecosystems. That's why Alexander Shimpukat will be in Cologne at the end of November. The indigenous artist from the Shipibo-Konibo community in Peru uses his art to defend the Amazon region and the sovereignty and cultural identity of the indigenous peoples.
To get an impression of his art and the creative process behind it, you can come to the Stollwerck and Allerweltshaus on the last two weekends in November. There you can swing your brush yourself and try your hand at a painting workshop with natural colors from the Amazon region. You can also take part in a lecture and discussion with Alexander Shimpukat, enjoy audiovisual effects and marvel at a finissage.
You do not need to be artistically talented or creative, nor do you need any previous knowledge. To cover material costs and to pay the artist appropriately, we ask for an entrance fee of €7 or €3.50 reduced. If you would like to come, just send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you!
