Photos X Action offered the unique opportunity to own a photo print from recognized photographers in support of the Shipibo-Konibo; an indigenous nation in the Amazon greatly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. All proceeds from our fundraising effort went directly to the Shipibo-Konibo emergency fund in partnership with Alianza Arkana.
We believe that art and culture can play a fundamental role in challenging situations, capable of creating long-term relations and inspiring positive change in our reality. This is why at Xapiri we made visible for the first time a contemporary photographic exhibition in support of the Shipibo-Konibo during this pandemic.
Thank you to the work donated by 10 national and international renowned artists, who came together for the urgent health needs in the central Peruvian Amazon, and to the support of 130+ donors, we have been able to raise a significant amount for the Shipibo-Konibo emergency fund, which addresses the needs of the indigenous people during this pandemic. All of these proceeds, after printing and delivery costs, have gone directly to this fund and to date $9,538.40 has been sent to our allies Alianza Arkana, who are managing the relief work from the ground in Pucallpa.
