An special talk by Dj AFroraizz Selektah who cames directly from venezuela in a short visit to london to talk about the well known Collective Tiuna el Fuerte, a local community collective that uses art, music and culture to transform the barrio of El Valle in Caracas, Venezuela. Situated on an old parking lot they developed into a cultural park using reclaimed materials, Tiuna el Fuerte now hosts a hip-hop school, a youth orchestra, a mobile community radio, and serves as an example for an alternative space for the community.
The space is a “nucleus of endogenous cultural development,” exemplifying the concept of local development of the people, for the people, by the people that finds its roots in modern day Venezuela.
