Project Management Update from Santiago

By Jaime Videla

Santiago, Chile


Milan Expo 2015

Tradition of Chile’s southernmost reaches the show

A deeply rooted cultural heritage on the southern tip of Chile is one of the national attractions in the Milan Expo 2015 in Italy. The work of the artisan Carolina Quintul, descendant of kawéscar people will be in the first days of July in this important global event.


His pieces of rattan basketry form part of a larger exhibition entitled “Crafts Alive” where are six artists from different parts of the country – all belonging to the network Craft Chile – exposing and holding workshops for the public.

Carolina Quintul manufactures baskets, bread baskets, small canoes and other utilitarian and ornamental objects, with the reed, a plant that grows in the southernmost regions of Chile. His office was inherited from their ancestors and transmitted to their children and grandchildren, all who collaborate with her regularly offer their products in the Plaza de Armas of Punta Arenas.
