In 2013, after my residency project in Oaxaca, Mexico, I was invited by Bandui Lab to participate a local community art project. Bandui Lab is a NGO host by a couple Leonardo Trujillo and Clarissa Zarate, collaborates with Aztec village in Oaxaca, counselling Aztec villagers with their existing carpentry or weaving skills to create craft works, art toys related to their tribal culture and also craft works possessed of a contemporary design sense, and then they would coach them to set up a physical store and exhibitions to share revenue.
