We are currently in a start-up phase of Vortex and have initiated 'sketch designs' of projects we are pursuing.
We want to develop these with you and your skills - please get in touch if you feel you have something to contribute or have another project you wish to create within the Vortex.
Projects in progress:
We have invested in land in the Venezuelan Gran Sabana and have started building. Despite severe restrictions in material availability we are committed to building a center for canalized, positive development within the community and will draw upon vernacular building techniques and permaculture principles in order to make this possible.
This focuses on the relationship between place, culture and food particularly within the Venezuelan Gran Sabana and the local Pemon communities. It will tell a story of the local Indigenous foods, rituals and spirituality and how this can influence our 'modern' approach to food outside this context.
Basic health & waste management projects in Indigenous communities within the Venezuelan Amazon.
