This was the first mural festival in Akumal, Mexico, over 70 artists from around the world came together to help beautify this town. We ended up creating something more than just a collection of beautiful murals, we helped unite the community and bring out the best in everyone involved.
The people of Akumal were so incredibly generous and welcoming, they offered us places to stay, food to eat and transportation around town. The artists that came to participate in this event were equally optimistic and full of positive energy, we ended up making friends from many different parts of the world. As a group we created beautiful artwork, made unforgettable memories and for many of us had an all together transformative experience.
The festival was so well received by the people of Akumal that there are already plans being made for the second Akumal Arts Festival in 2019 and we can’t wait to be a part of it again!
