El Boga Art Residency:

Estefanía seeks to develop a collaborative project on the Interpretation of the momposino territory through oral and written riverside literature. Although the bibliography written by outsiders is very important for drawing up a historical-cultural-geographical map of the Momposino depression, priority will be given to the testimonies (oral and written) of the Momposino inhabitants.

Her objective is to explore the diverse trades, traditions, biodiversity and history of Mompox, told from the oral and written tradition of the momposinos in their daily life and bibliography.

This project will enjoy a transmedia narrative: audiovisual, sound, photographic, written and graphic, with the intention of constructing an immersive exhibition in homage to the oral and written literary tradition of the Mompox depression.

Resident Host 2023-1

During her time as Resident Host, she will mainly seek to learn from the people of Mompox and get to know their ancestral culture, in order to propose complementary cultural and educational activities aligned with their interests. In addition to this, she will be the liaison person for the artists in residence. Estefania believes in interdisciplinary art and collaborative creation.
