Making milpa at Centrum Kultury Zamek continued exploring the possibility of imagining the milpa as a curriculum and learning environment based on forms of collaboration and artistic research. As part of the invitation of Centrum Kultury Zamek in Poznan to take part of the residency program, the space and resources was shared and invitations extended to many other collaborators with the purpose of exploring artistic collaborations and build together a program and space offered to the publics. The residency project invited and hosted artists including Raul Hott, Roberto Nino Betancourt, Sadia Pineda and Beau W. Beakhouse, and Gerardo Gomez Tonda.
As a result a series of conversations and collaborations between Diego Gutierrez Valladares and different collaborators resulted in series of workshops and a group show which presented the practical experimentations produced during the residency.
