The simple act of just walking into La68 will transport you to a space of serenity and peace. This is an area that will immerse you in a cohesive environment of reflection and coexistence, home to captivating spaces with a unique identity, which make you want to find out more about their origin and reason for being.
When you take a closer look, it is inevitable to feel the great passion the creators have poured here, which is made evident by each and every project that is housed within. The concept at La68, re-inaugurated in 2020, provides several environments that encourage the consumption of art and culture from a collective perspective.
During my brief visit, Daniela Camacho, director of La68, enthusiastically showed me the gallery where you will find art in movement along with workshops that invite exchange; not your typical stagnant exhibitions. She shared with me that this hall has been the site of all genres of events with everything from cumbia dance classes to lectures that generate interesting dialog between the participants.
