Fugaz | Arte de Convivir
Fugaz | Arte de Convivir is a sociocultural initiative that creates community and recovers public spaces through art, innovation and social management in Monumental Callao, a historic and heritage zone of the first port of Peru that was taken by violence for years. Fugaz offers a place of coexistence between its creativity and environment where there are no distinctions for skin color, religion, socio-economic level, sexual orientation or any other consideration. A place where the community is the source of inspiration to create and to live again with hope, helping each other and learning from those interactions.
