MORE ABOUT DIGNICRAFT
We are a hybrid between an art collective, media production company and distributor of cultural goods, inspired by human dignity and justice, the artisanal process of creation and the potential of collaboration to spark change.
The essence of our art practice is to encourage encounters normally not seen between people of different backgrounds. We do this by producing documentaries, distributing cultural goods such as films and crafts with a great story behind them, or imparting a collaborative workshop as part of a contemporary art project. The most important thing for us is the quality of the relationships we establish and their consequences.
Dignicraft was born of the evolution of collective work that we started in 2000, together with other people under the name Bulbo and Galatea audio/visual. We are Paola Rodríguez, José Luis Figueroa, Omar Foglio, Blanca O. España, David Figueroa and Araceli Blancarte.
