More Info

We created El Lugarcito as a place where children and adults can come together to share, be creative and learn from each other. Our mission is to create a place where El Cuyo's community and visitors can expand cultural horizons and unity in learning, creativity and arts.

Most of the activities are volunteer-based and we rely on donations and sponsors to fund the free or low cost classes. With the help of 60+ local business sponsoring local programs in 2021 and 600+ hours volunteer hours, we created a place for people to learn and teach their talents through workshops, classes and events. 

Over the last year, we have the opportunity to impact the community through:

  • 700+ Hours Classes and Talleres (STEM, Arts, Deportes y mas)
  • 300+ Children participate in community events and programs
  • 150+ Adult and Children Participants English Program (10% of the population in El Cuyo)
  • 40+ Local Artists Highlighted at 1st Art Mercado

Current programs we offer include:

  • Only Library within 25km
  • English Classes for adults and kids
  • Language exchanges to practice English and Spanish
  • Night Art Market to highlight our local artists and entrepreneurs 
  • Book Swap or Book Exchange
  • Parent and Toddler meetups
  • Movie and Documentary nights
  • Space for Free afterschool program (with Arte, Theater, LEGO, and other workshops)
  • Space for the community to use to learn a new skill or a teach classes such as Dance classes, Yoga, Painting, Ecological Education for children and adults

Please consider a donation which would allow us to buy supplies, keep the lights on, water running and continue to develop programs for the people in El Cuyo.
