Outfitting the Space to Make It Operative
One of the substantive activities of the San Pedro Factory Cultural Center is the program of temporary residences of creators, aimed at sparking collaborative dialogue between the bearers of the legacy and creative patrimony in Michoacán with contemporary approaches to the subject.
For this purpose, the plan envisions the organization of 12 workshop-residences aimed at hosting chefs, cooks, designers, artisans, and artists from Mexico and abroad.
Through these residences, the Cultural Center will generate processes of production and circulation of art and design, a program of research, exhibitions, courses, workshops, certificate courses, encounters, roundtables, and innovative cultural experiences accessible to creators, specific communities, and the public in general.
We have requested artisans from nearby and other regions, as well as preeminent Mexican and foreign designers to produce special furnishings for the rooms, integrating them into the language and characteristics of the restoration of the building, its history, and the needs of the new project.
