SAVE the neighborhood of Rimac
The ultimate community art project: SAVE the neighborhood of Rimac addresses how artists are employed to boost the image of 'bad' neighborhoods. TINKEBELL.'s project neatly checks all the boxes: 'working together', 'neighborly communication' and 'sending a positive signal to the outside world'. A response to the well-known community art projects, in which artists and their work are instrumentalized by city councils.
Presentation of SAVE the neighborhood of Rimac by TINKEBELL. and friends. Music by Peruvian threesome Apu Inka on guitar, panflute, charango (string instrument), kena (flute), and drums. Traditional Peruvian food like ceviche and crema de zapallo.
