We run an artisan workshop and educational space in Nicaragua, offering art classes to youth and workshops to adults. Our vision is to to build capacity for creative thinking, problem solving, and technical skills as tools for adapting to a changing climate and realizing human potential. Currently we support a women's group, art classes, a music group and a local board of directors that organizes and coordinates community development projects.
