Shipibo Conibo Center
The Shipibo Conibo Center of New York is an art project in the form of a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit cultural organization founded in 2016. It is set up to promote and perpetuate the creative life-ways and knowledge of the Indigenous Shipibo Conibo people of the Peruvian Amazon through the contemporary setting of global art and knowledge production in such a way that it would benefit its practitioners. The main fields of activity are within the categories of Art, Indigenous Territorial Sovereignty and Ethnobotanical Research. The Center works to facilitate collaborations between Shipibo Conibo practitioners and cultural institutions in order to maintain the contemporary relevance and evolution of Shipibo Conibo wisdom rather than relegating it to a lost and collectible past.
