AYNI for the world. A Celebration of Art and Hope

AYNI for the world. A Celebration of Art and Hope, Aracari Travel

Ayni is the Andean practice of reciprocity – ‘I help you today, you help me tomorrow, and together we make a new world.’

After three months of curfew, quarantine and containment, Yanantin Media Group, a Cusco based collective of storytellers and filmmakers, is launching the city’s first virtual dinner party and festival of music and art sponsored by Aracari. Limited to just 100 households throughout the world, the event will raise spirits in difficult times and remind us of the beauty and brilliance of caring and compassionate communication.

Hosted by one of the city’s most dynamic cultural empresarios, Tito Roa, Ayni for the World  includes an exquisite line up of music, five short films produced with Aracari Travel and Jonathan Stack, art, dance, and poetry with toasts and stories in both English and Spanish.

Once the capital of the Inca Empire, today’s Cusco is a center of cultural innovation –both deeply rooted in its extraordinary history, and home to a vibrant community of free-thinking artists, dancers, actors, poets and writers ready to re-imagine a better future.

One hundred guests from all over the world will gather for this unique Zoom event and share the evening from the comfort of their homes with a chance to both meet new people and share time with old friends.

For people based in Cusco, there will be a special menu available from one of the city’s top chefs delivered to their homes along with artisanal beer and spirits. 

All funds raised during the event will go to support artists here in Cusco.

Friday, June 12th @ 19-21h Cusco time (20h East Coast)
