THE ONDALINDA ART FOUNDATION

CULTURAL PRESERVATION IN
MEXICO

0% $50,000 USD

PARTNER ORGANIZATION:
Ondalinda

 

Ondalinda’s Art and Culture project assists indigenous communities throughout Mexico in preserving their cultural heritage and cultivating a new generation of interdisciplinary artists. Proceeds from your donations go directly to the Huichol (Wixarica), Purépecha, and other indigenous tribes from Mexico greatly enabling them to invest in basic infrastructure and resources, to educate and raise awareness for their cause, and to achieve sustainability on a long-term basis.

 

We do this because we believe in the importance of art, community, heritage, sustainability, ritual, and connectivity to inspire humankind and reestablish systems that unite us, rather than separate us. As we are learning every day, the current “win-win” model of commerce that has shaped our world is not a sustainable business practice; by focusing only on the exchange of “buy and sell”, we neglect a third exchange – giving back – which is in fact the very element that brings us together and makes the world a more peaceful and harmonious place for us all to live.

 

WIXARIKA & PURHEPECHA SUSTAINABLE PROJECTS:

1. Supporting crafts and art development, which allows talented artists of those communities to purchase primary material to create elaborated art pieces.

2. Supporting native women to access educational workshops within their community, pursuing higher life goals and creating financial independence, empowering and well being.
(Such as health program, orientation and household budget management)

3. Infrastructural facilities & development in native communities, ensuring overall sustainability from external societies.
(Such as basic construction, farming tools & machinery, sewing machine, and local logistic)
