This three-week intensive immerses students in the nature and culture of Ecuador, the first country to have adopted “rights for nature” in its national constitution.

In an area where ecotourism is giving rise to new economic prospects and challenges for village life, the course explores the relationship of community art and design to the natural environment.

The host, Larissa Marangoni, is an internationally known sculptor who has been organizing artist residencies in the coastal communities since 2007 through Franja Arte-Comunidad, the cultural arm of Aprofe, a distinguished public health provider.
