The Office for Cultural Projects (OPC) is an independent non-profit arts organization dedicated to fostering dialogue through exhibitions, round table discussions, and public art and arts education programs. OPC works with artists, architects, curators, academics, and writers who explore ideas that shape our city and develop cultural programming that is firmly rooted in Puerto Vallarta, yet international in scope.

Currently showing until July 27, 2019: “Promised Lands”, an exhibition that will examine issues of global migration, often forced, from from Syria to the recent refugee caravans from Central America through Mexico. Including photos, video, installations and more in commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Oficina de Proyectos Culturales has organized Promised Lands, an exhibition about the global refugee crisis.
Mexico and the European Union faced similar situations as tens of thousands of Honduran refugees flooded the southern Mexican border in a march to seek political asylum in the United States. The motivations and challenges for these migrants are comparable to those in other parts of the world: war, violence, and extreme poverty push them on a dangerous journey that often ends in tragedy. It is crucial that we as a society begin a dialogue and become aware of these experiences; OPC would like to start that conversation through this exhibition.
