Humanese is a common language that defines, innovates, communicates, and interconnects all the arts, ecology, and spirituality.
Humanese is a space for human encounter in the city. A resource center for co-creation, re-creation and e-volution.
After years of study, travelings, encounters and co-creations, we jumped into the challenge of creating a space for spiritual development, arts, culture and ecology, immersed in the San Lucas neighborhood of Medellin, Colombia.
