We had the opportunity of getting to know another side of migration while staying with the families of Lomas de San Isidro’s community.
Alongside University of Concordia of St. Paul, we got to know Mexico through its art. We toured museums and archeological sites of Mexico City which allowed us to understand different customs, textures and techniques in the history of Mexico, from the prehispanical era to our times. We also spent time with art students of Amextra’s Community Centre in Tultitlán in State of Mexico.
