Heritance
December 17, 2007

My name is Camilo Sanchez and I'm chief of exhibition design at Maloka, a science centre in Bogota, Colombia. After 9 years of operation, Maloka is working at the moment on the construction of a second phase. Although the original plans for that new development were drawn 5 years ago, the needs of the organization have changed over the years and that old plan is not exactly what we are looking for today. In June we asked Heritance to give us a hand in the construction of a program for the musicological development of the second phase. A month ago, Heritance visited us for 10 days in Bogotá. As a result of an inspiring workshop, we created a team devoted to the definition of the program and the concepts that will be the basis of this new development. Heritance made us rethink and reformulate the basic ideas behind the transmition of scientific knowledge to our visitors and gave us lights and new ideas on how to approach the design of Maloka II. Have not been for Heritance, we would still be working on the ideas of the old project. They made us stop and THINK, and that is just priceless!!. After the workshop we kept on working here at Maloka and we regularly communicate with Heritance through the Internet. It is amazing how they keep track of the seed they planted in our minds. WONDERFUL!!!
