El Boga Residence
Laura's proposal, Saberes Ancestrales Momposinos, is aimed at disseminating and promoting the intangible cultural heritage of Santa Cruz de Mompox. In the first instance, it will be oriented towards the art of Mompoxian filigree jewellery. Through the study and interaction with the artisans, Laura proposes the creation of a designed and illustrated leaflet (printed and digital), as a means of dissemination and promotion, which will capture the essence of this ancestral art and will contribute to enriching cultural-educational tourism. In addition, there will be an exhibition with the illustrations used, as a space for meeting with the community, launching and dissemination of the folding.
