The work in the Museum includes working with tools such as shovels, hoes and others, that means being ready to get dirty! The participants are going to support the families renovating and readjustment of the entrance, to repair the stairs of the pyramid- channel of water and the development of educational games for children about the art of weaving.,
The project is going carried out, with the help of the local community (families)

We are going to sleep, work and eat in the museum. The museum is located in walking distance from the vivid city Centre of Otavalo with its famous indigenous handicrafts market.

Otavalo is a town two hours from the north of Quito by bus. It lays at the base of the volcano Imbabura and in its surroundings you can find many beautiful lakes and waterfalls, possible destinations for excursions. The city is vibrating with energy and at the same time more relaxed and a lot safer than the metropolis Quito. Otavalo is an interesting place because of the significance of the indigenous culture with its festivities, clothes, handicrafts, music etc. As we are going to work in the museum, you are going to learn a lot about local culture.

Afternoons after work are free to do any kind of group activity such as sports, walking around, or simply enjoy the place.

The Chiriboga Foundation received the proposal of helping a “Living Museum” who is interested to contribute in the conservation and revitalization of the tangible and intangible cultural heritage of the Kichwa Otavalango people, through research, tourism development and cultural education.

This museum is managed by 22 families of the Otavalo’s community, who bought the property, in order to conserve their history, in this building in the past there was an “Obraje” a fabric factory.
