CHARLESTON, SC -- The Ibu Movement, a pioneering force in poverty disruption and cultural preservation, is delighted to announce its upcoming event, "Colombiana!." This distinctive fundraising experience will celebrate the rich cultural heritage, craftsmanship, and cuisine of Colombia. Set to take place on November 15, 2023, this event will unfold across 10 different homes in Charleston’s historic South of Broad neighborhood, promising an unforgettable evening for all attendees.
“Colombiana!” will immerse guests in the rich and diverse tapestry of Colombian traditions, offering a unique opportunity to explore the country's heritage and culinary excellence. Artisans and luminaries from Colombia will come to Charleston to share their rich history, traditions, and craft over intimate dinners. This event exemplifies Ibu Movement's ongoing mission to foster understanding and appreciation of cultures from around the world.
Guests will enjoy authentic Colombian meals with the menu personalized by Mariana Velasquez, an award-winning food stylist and author of the celebrated cookbook, “Colombiana: A Rediscovery of Recipes and Rituals from the Soul of Colombia.” The evening will culminate with a stroll to a Lamboll Street residence for a grand finale of desserts prepared by FIG, dramatically styled by Mariana.
Following dessert, attendees will be invited to shop treasures crafted by Ibu artisans at a Colombian pop-up boutique curated by Ibu Movement’s partners at El Dorado Edit. The entire evening is a tribute to culture and craft, and the ancient wisdom these indigenous artisans possess.
“I have met these luminaries in the artisanal world of Colombia, crafting not only beauty but change. It is an honor to listen to the remarkable stories of the First Nations indigenous artisans the week before we celebrate our own Thanksgiving, and to learn how their culture and craft carry ancient wisdom, how their food carries rich history, how their hearts carry such light,” shares Susan Hull Walker, Founder and CEO of the Ibu Movement.
Tickets for "Colombiana!" are available for purchase on the Ibu Movement website at Ibumovement.org. This event promises to be a memorable experience and an indelible celebration of culture, craftsmanship, and the timeless wisdom of indigenous artisans.
