Once a year, over 100 artists come together in the pueblo of Akumal to paint murals, offer workshops, performances, engage with the local community and each other. 

Art, community, and nature go hand in hand


Our Mission

To engage and enhance the community through an international consortium of artists. Our participants come from all over the world; starting with the local community and including greater Mexico and around the globe.


Our Vision

We work to bring a fiesta to Akumal Pueblo beautifying the town for locals and visitors.

As Akumal is a rapidly developing area and considered a ground zero site for ecological disaster, we believe in art-as-activism for our town.

We Need Your Support Today!
