FUGAZ | Art OF Coexisting
Fugaz I Art of Coexistingis a socio-cultural initiative that creates communities and recovers public spaces through art, innovation, and creation. Fugaz proposes a place of coexistence between creativity and the environment that welcomes it; where there are no distinctions for skin color, religion, socioeconomic status, sexuality, or any other view. A place where the community is the source of inspiration to create and to live again with hope, helping each other, and learning from those encounters.
Monumental Callao was trapped between places that spoke of a glory that has left but is awakening with momentum, for example, Real Felipe, Plaza Grau, Plaza Matriz, Plaza Gálvez, and the port. The Historic Center of Callao is connected by old little streets that, with their lanterns, tell of a bohemian and our past, which is now in oblivion. The old Ronald building and the houses that surround it makeup, perhaps, one of the most architecturally valuable sites in Republican Peru.
We are a model of social management and a promise that is coming true. Peru is full of people who give love to their work therefore truly making it shine. Ours is a proposal that seeks to attract that “shine” but to blind the differences. Fugaz grows in synergy with members of the “barrios”, artists, gallery owners, cultural managers, entrepreneurs, business people, and private organizations that are committed to a new social future in the area.
The initiative invites you to walk the streets through art, music, gastronomy, history, graffiti, literature, family activities, and local culture. As a result, citizens are taking up public spaces, there is a wave of gratitude and hope where violence has dropped by 90% to recreate an identity far from referents of social unrest. A space that embraces freedom with the "barrio" because we are all the “barrio”. The “barrio” not only evokes a place but an idea: trust, calm, home. A “barrio” with the freedom to live and express itself without fear and without any limits other than respect and tolerance towards others.
