CBAT's Autumn Fundraiser 2023

In Nov 2023, we held our third residence program fundraiser, where we were pleased to welcome fashion designers from Bolivia. The occasion highlighted the alpaca use in wool, cloth, looms, and fur while showcasing its extraordinary adaptability. The event included the exhibition of artwork from photographer Javier Molina Barrios and artist Ines Fernandez de Cordova. 

The runway showcased collections of designers WaraYana and P. Santiago, highlighting the distinct creativity and craftsmanship characteristic of Bolivian designers. A lovely selection of home and infant items, including coats, ponchos, and accessories made of alpaca, was on display. CBAT is deeply grateful to the designers for donating a generous percentage of their sales during the event and to everyone who attended and supported our cause through our "JustGiving" campaign. We sincerely appreciate the unwavering commitment and solidarity demonstrated for our events.

CBAT, in collaboration with Kiosko Galeria, invites Bolivian artists interested in applying for the 2024 Gasworks Residency in London to a talk by Santiago Contreras Soux, winner of the 2022 Residency sponsored by CBAT.  The objective is to help postulant artists get closer to their artistic practice and thus visualize which elements of their body of work they select to present a portfolio coherent with their journey and the project submitted to Gasworks.
