ME Ecuador: Meet Alberto “El Caretero” (The Mask Maker)
Wed November 10, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm EST
You are invited to take a few minutes and join us for our next live stream from Quito, where you will meet, Alberto “El Caretero” (The Mask Maker).
In one of the most traditional neighborhoods in the historic downtown Quito, La Loma Grande, a place as magical as the people who live and work in it. For more than two decades, very close to “La Mama Cuchara” El Caretero has been making beautiful handmade paper and cardboard masks. They are representations of Ecuadorian popular culture.
They are made with the same technique of yesteryear, in clay molds and paste, which are then painted completely by hand. In addition, El Caretero of la Loma Grande exhibits a demonstration of skill when creating unique pieces by hand and invites you to participate in its creation. Discover and learn how his process is and let yourself be charmed by its art and tradition.
Having this knowledge makes you better, more valuable as an agent and in turn, transforms this client’s journey into a life changing series of moments. We hope you will enjoy meeting El Caretero on this call and learning more about how YOU can be a part of this movement simply by listening and sharing.
