CUENTOS Foundation gives voice to the stories (cuentos)
of our diverse communities through the collaborative art
programs we create and facilitate. We utilize artistic strategies
for reflecting upon, expressing, documenting, and sharing our
transforming cultural heritage and traditions.
Cuentos Foundation is a 501(c)(3), non-profit
arts organization that creates and facilitates global / local
intercultural exchange. Since its founding in 1998, Cuentos has
produced numerous community-based interdisciplinary projects,
including its founding global village project, Ritmo del
Fuego / Rhythm of Fire - devoted to the art and artisans
of Santa Clara del Cobre, Michoacán, Mexico. Cuentos maintains
a collection of exquisite museum quality copper art from Santa
Clara available as a resource base for study and for traveling
exhibition. Also available are Cuentos’ book and video documentary
on Santa Clara del Cobre.
