Arteria is a new reality in the artistic field; joining the functions of a traditional art gallery with a space dedicated to the continuous achievement of educational projects. Our focus is directed towards the constant search for artistic creativity and possibilities.
Our Mission at Arteria is to collaborate with artists and local communities to promote, diffuse, and share the arts to enhance understanding, build communities, and empower lives.
Our objective is to create a space that encourages art as a cultural platform by promoting the development of artists and creating a diverse community for cultural exchange; achieved through free expression, enthusiasm, education, compassion, and love of the arts.
Who We Are
We are a team of dynamic individuals characterized and enriched by being a multicultural team and have different backgrounds and professional experiences. The common value that unites us is primarily the recognition of art as an important instrument of formation, reflection and integration. We are a nonprofit organization that raises money through events and donations from the community, which we put back into creating quality art projects.
Located in the eastern part of the city of San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, in the neighborhood of Cuxtitali, we have different spaces for the realization of artistic activities and projects and a gallery to show the works of different collaborating artists. We are ultimately open to the participation of artists and ordinary citizens with a common goal to develop the talents and virtues of our artistic community space.
Our goal is to instill a sense of power to the arts as a means of addressing challenging topics as well as exposing the wider community to new art forms and learning.
