An Afternoon with D. A. R. Proyectos
VIEW RECORDING HERE
Join us for a conversation with Jenny Boucher and Mauricio Navarro of the Peruvian design studio D.A.R. Proyectos as they talk about their process in developing and designing Weaving the Light, a lighting collection that explores the intersection of vanishing, traditional Andean skills and high-tech materials.
As the lead designers and founders of D.A.R. Proyectos, Jenny and Mauricio live and work in the northern provinces of La Libertad and Cajamarca, Peru with a diverse group of artisans and craftspeople. They believe that conscious design can act as a bridge between indigenous craft communities and global citizens.
View the Weaving the Light installation at the ground floor window of the Museum and take a closer look at their design process with the hands-on display at the Textile Learning Hub from July 27 to September 4, 2022.
This installation is part of the DesignTO Festival.
