Driving through the most remote regions of Mexico, the artists driving the "Paz Paz Bus" are working to transform the struggling rural communities in Mexico.
Their vehicle is an old school bus they have turned into a mobile laboratory. It combines the artists's passion for art and their drive and desire to create sustainable solutions to growing ecological problems.
Liliana Riva Palacio and Enrique Lomnitz brought together these twin passions and their multidisciplinary expertise to inspire and empower rural communities in the responsible use of natural resources.
Together, their approach encompasses water conservation, energy efficiency, and cultural and social development, all from onboard their roaming caravan they call the "Paz Paz Bus".
With great imagination, and encouraging free expression and creativity, they are working to implement solutions to overcoming the negative environmental impact affecting Mexico.
