By macu In Macu and friends

Luis Arévalo is the coordinator of the project Casa Barrio Tepito and cultural promoter of the Red de Espacios Culturales en Tepito (network of cultural spaces). Luis is a master shoemaker with an interesting past: he collaborated with the Zapatistas in Chiapas,  teaching the indigenous to make and repair shoes as an alternative to farming. Today he teaches the same classe to the people of Tepito with the hope of giving them a better future.
