el puente_lab

el puente_lab [laboratory of cultural activation] (art collective El Puente until 2007) is the result of the work of a group of people who have contributed since 2000 to give shape and content to something that originally was just an idea: to create a system of communication and dialogue for the development of projects in different parts of the world through the exchange of experiences generated in different contexts and carriers of knowledge.
