Joaquin Llorca, Mauricio Guerrero, Ana Garay and John Ordoñez / Colombia
Proclaimed by UNESCO in 2010 as Cultural Heritage of Hu-manity, The Coffee Cultural Landscape is a reference framework that defines a region of Colombia from an economic activity that has shaped it culturally. This spatial reference unit suggests new strategies and tools for the knowledge and appropriation of this heritage. Therefore, the sound dimension as a fundamental ex-pression of the identity of the regions is an essential element in the conformation of a territory. This article presents the theoreti-cal framework, methodology, and results of a four-year laboratory with the communities of the Coffee Cultural Landscape, which had as the main objective to positively influence the quality of life of the communities through artistic and cultural practices from its sound dimension.
