Who will be teaching?

Colibri Stories emerged in 2022 with the desire to respond to the recognition, appropriation and appreciation of our own history and culture. We expose others to these deep histories and cultures through creativity and curiosity made into art.

Colibri Stories are:

Katherine (she/her) is a Colombian in love with her culture and roots. She is fascinated by being able to tell stories and leave a message to each person. Have a look at her events and workshops on their instagram.

Irma (she/her) loves to share her home country with viewers. She encourages everyone to immerse themselves in Mexican culture and art, through creativity. She wants to invite people to discover what lies beyond the other side of the world. Check her work out on instagram.
