The Visual Arts Program is launching our new interdisciplinary  research  project “Random Kitchen”.

This workshop is organized by the Visual Arts Program of the Barco de Papel Cultural Center in collaboration with the community organization Voces Latinas and artists residing in the city of New York.

The kitchen is that warm part of the home where families once met. There, in the heat of the fire, while eating, doing the chores, mending clothes or drinking coffee while they were intertwined stories that have gradually been forming part of our culture. It would not be exaggerated to say that many of our traditions were passed down from generation to generation around the home fire.

We want to recover for our workshop “Random Kitchen”, this symbolic place of the house, programming five totally free workshops that will take place in different houses in our community. From Saturday, January 27th to Sunday, March 5, where people from different professions will take part in recycled clothing in a totally home environment.

In these workshops we take into account the richness and cultural variety that exists in our community. We learn from all cultures, while having fun recycling clothes and intervening in a creative way achieving a unique piece of originality in each workshop.

This workshop is organized by the Visual Arts Program of the Barco de Papel Cultural Center in collaboration with the community organization Voces Latinas and artists residing in the city of New York.

The first workshop was conducted by visual artist Joyce Sanchez
