In partnership with the Ibero-American Cultural Attachés Association (AACIA), this exhibition examines how populations of Ibero-American countries have managed to face the vicissitudes caused by climate change through small ventures with more or less technological influence. The ability to use imagination, creativity, and hope for a better world, has allowed the emergence of sustainable economies projects that open new paths and alternatives on today’s world. This exhibition aims to gather images of these projects and enterprises that have emerged as a means of survival, challenging climate change. Not only does it focus on the aesthetic aspects of photography itself, but it also aims to give testimony to the commitment of these countries throughout its changes.

AACIA’s mission is to promote, disseminate, and preserve the heritage, culture, and art of Ibero-America in the Washington D.C. area, while working actively to build bridges between Latin America, Portugal, Spain, and the United States.

This exhibition runs from November 4th through December 18th, 2016.
