Once again, the city of Puchuncaví was the scenario for the Latin American Folk Summit hosted by the Puerto Abierto Community Center and Quintero’s Danza Nuestra group. One of the features of this year was a tour the seven participating delegations made through ten rural schools in the region, where they showcased to the local children a small sample of their work. They later invited them to a gala, which took place on Friday, April 14 at the Puerto Abierto Community Center, where over 400 people attended.
Another novelty this year was a seminar, held as part of the meeting, where local teachers and folk organizations shared experiences about how each country rescues and preserves their cultural traditions.
At the same time, foreign delegations had the chance to enjoy the hospitality of their host group “Tradiciones La Greda,” who organized a one-dish reunion in their honor. With this activity, the Puerto Abierto Community Center wants to promote the value of the heritage and traditions of the people of Puchuncaví, opening windows to their cultural growth.
