JOSE MARIA ARGUEDAS, PERUVIAN INDIGENIST WRITER, DESCRIBES THE MEANING OF THE QUECHUA WORD MUNAY AS THE ART OF LOVING OF THE ANDEAN CULTURE, WHICH IMPLIES THE NO MATERIALISTIC WILL OF LOVING.
MUNAY gathers a diverse group of professionals with a strong commitment towards society. We chase after the dream of using our work to contribute in a small or big way to people, communities and organizations that have the everyday chore of protecting their culture and safeguarding their identity. MUNAY projects and joined efforts keep us on the go, involved and highly motivated to continue working for the people that have opened their doors to us. We have given ourselves the main task of going after those stories that deserve to be shown and shared. We want to provide a space to learn and explore different sociopolitical realities and hopefully become a visual voice to the voiceless and a bridge to bring people closer together. We use the visual arts to bring you those stories that have caught our interest and touched our hearts. The andean Munay, the will of love, love for culture, activism and constant learning is the concept that has brought us together. However, MUNAY was born in Peru, and we are in the pursuit of a universal dialogue. Arts sensitize people, curiosity enriches the mind, and MUNAY is lead by its honest wish to see the world with fresh eyes and free of preconceptions. We work to see a world where our differences only lead us to see how similar we are.
