Creativity Made in Mexico
By Jade Arroyo
This weekend a special event was held in La Biblioteca, celebrating products made proudly in Mexico, by independent entrepreneurs and young creatives in the country. This event was the 17th edition Bazaar of Alternative Design San Miguel, whose production was to benefit the scholarship program of La Biblioteca. More than 40 independent and original brands gathered to interact with the public, who could approach the artists in person, learn their creative processes and purchase a product made ethically.
Establishing itself as a product of cultural consumption, the bazaar featured various activities, such as a conference/worktable by the renowned Mexican photographer Flor Acosta, followed by a review of portfolios, consultancy enthusiasts, and amateur photographer. DJ Ben Ham appeared live with a special set for the bazaar and had everyone dancing in their place. Microteatro San Miguel surprised everyone with their jokes and humorous routines. The bazaar closed with a flourish Design Raffle. There were all kinds of prizes, and all proceeds were donated to the Biblioteca.
The bazaar staff would like to thank all community members and visitors who attended this weekend and supported the event Mexican artists, the young cartonero Marco Bautista who did a special mojiganga representing Sor Juana Ines De La Cruz, and our resident graphic designer Machuca, Microteatro SMA, and Flor Acosta for their great contributions.
