                                        IV National Festival of bodyPaint "SINCRETISMO" - "SYNCRETISM"  2018 ( on progress )

    Every year, the Historic Center of Guatemala organizes the 'Festival del Centro Historico' with cultural and artistic activities. One of the activities is the Body Paint Festival, which takes place in one of the main pedestrian streets of the 6th Avenue within the very center of the Historical Center. Organized by 'Colectivo Contraste' and 'Asi es mi Guate', they showed a creative, professional and responsible effort within the whole organization.

The theme chosen this year was syncretism

 Syncretism (wikipedia)  is the combining of different beliefs, while blending practices of various schools of thought. Syncretism involves the merging or assimilation of several originally discrete traditions, especially in the theology and mythology of religion, thus asserting an underlying unity and allowing for an inclusive approach to other faiths. Syncretism also occurs commonly in expressions of arts and culture (known as eclecticism) as well as politics (syncretic politics).
