Let’s help this communities together.

Proyecto Rufino

In May 2019, our friends Agnes and Javi from Avatar Domeyogaart visited Peru and were super amazed by the natural and cultural diversity of the places they visited. WCU shared the peruvian network and contacts with them and they were welcomed by our dear friends César and Julia Mendoza, Coqui and the rest of the family. How powerful is the human network to help us BUILDING FOR A CHANGE!

They traveled up to the village Pacchanta, up in the andean mountains and stayed together with Rufino and his beautiful family. After two days sharing stories and experiences together, they were very inspired to contribute with Rufino and his community co-creating the project Pacchanta. They have now created a page on their website where they share some info in spanish.

Projecto Rufino, named after Rufino, aims to contribute to the better living of the community of Pacchanta, with sustainable building, the creation of domes and other solutions based on permaculture methods and tools.

For those willing to help us and take the first financial and volunteering steps into this project, please contact us. Donations, partnerships, sponsors, hands on…  WELCOME! We hope we can come back and start planting the seeds for this project together with you.

The Village of Malye Korely

Last November WCU was invited to participate at Artic Art Forum in the northern russian region of Arkhangelsk. Among the truly interesting presentations, talks, interactions and networking activities, we also visited the beautiful wooden village of Malye Korely, located in Primorsky district.

The traditional wooden architecture and design collected in this open air museum is fascinating. Witnessing this place during winter creates a truly strong impression, as it help us to understand how climate and weather conditions shape culture, history and traditions. The engineering and carpentry labour is so precise and accurate, showing the strong knowledge and skills from past generations and their relationship with the elements of nature. A perfect example and inspiration source for our contemporary concept of eco-village design.

Houses interiors are very well preserved and they keep decoration, arts and crafts, items and furniture as well. We also discovered the famous horse built by the talented artists of Taibola Assamble.

Traditional music, dances and performances are also part of the visitor experience in Malye Korely. The pictures we present here are only a small collection of all the photo documentation we collected during our visit.

Sharing the magic of this village during winter time now, while we look forward to visiting this incredible place during summer time too. Want to visit Malye Korely with us?
