Colombian Embassy Culture Night
Colombian Embassy presented a photography exhibition during Culture Night to showcase the diversity of the Colombian Caribbean.
The Colombian Embassy held its first Culture Night in Dublin with an exhibition of ‘The Black Line’” by Colombian photographer Coque Gamboa, depicting the sacred landscapes of the Sierra de Santa Marta. Gamboa’s photography exhibition, which displays the cosmogony of indigenous peoples of the Sierra de Santa Marta, encouraged the public to think about our relationship with the environment and the need to protect it.
Santa Marta is known for its breath-taking scenery and the four indigenous peoples that have inhabited the land since pre-Hispanic times. Its landscapes are characterized by green foliage, blue seas, white sand, and the contrast between the beaches and the white peaks of Sierra Nevada. Furthermore, this region is home to Parque Nacional Natural Tayrona, which is an ideal location for listening to the Caribbean Sea while hiking up the mountains.
The evening was completed by a market for handicrafts, music, gastronomy, illustration, and textiles by five Colombian entrepreneurs and creators residing in Ireland.
