Amidst the cosmopolitanism that is alive and well in Playas del Coco, The Voice of Guanacaste seeks to rescue the essence of Guanacastecan culture with its photo expo “Identity.”
The exhibit will be held on March 18 at the Kaixo restaurant in Playas del Coco, Guanacaste, and will have a selection of the best photos of the last few years from our news outlet that reflect Guanacaste’s idiosyncrasies.
“We want to make Guanacaste culture visible and at the same time pay homage to it, above all in places where lots of tourists visit us and that don’t have a lot of cultural spaces where people can learn about Guanacaste,” said Jennifer Vega, sales manager for The Voice.
The activity will be held from 3pm to 5pm and will be completely free of charge. In addition to enjoying the photos, those in attendance can purchase items from framed pictures to postcards.
Pins and bags with Guanacaste phrases printed on them will also be for sale. The funds from the event will be used to finance journalism at The Voice of Guanacaste.
The expo will offer up pieces by photojournalists César Arroyo, Ariana Crespo, David Bolaños, Eka Mora, Pinar Istek and Gloriana Ximendaz. The work of other photographers who have collaborated with the newspaper, such as Adrián Delgado and María Laura Charles, will also be on display.
