The EXPArTexpo will be held at the “Baby Boomers 50+ Living Show”, the 8th and 9th of June 2012 at Ajijic, Jalisco. We were glad to select Ajijic for representing the most popular Retirement & Expat destination for North American citizens, and because we conceive it as a highly organized community, formed by individuals with a strong sense of belonging, commitment and involvement towards the society they are part of.
One of the favorite pastimes of retirees is ART. Knowing this, AMAR has organized an exhibition of art for the Expat Community living in Mexico, the EXPArTexpo. In this context, this is the first event in Mexico dedicated to foreign people that have seen Mexico as their home and want to support, promote and develop Mexico’s cultural life.
This event will transcend borders and highlight what foreign people do for Mexico but also the benefits that Mexico gives its retired and expat residents and recognize the place that they have earned in this country. We will also count with local and Mexican artists in order to highlight the unification of both national and foreign individuals in the Ajijic community, which makes it a richer, diverse and accepting society.
AMAR recognizes the great mix of cultures that retirees develop in Mexico; they discover a new way to express their feelings, how they are living and interacting with its environment and the relationship with other retirees from different countries and with local people. This art is not with the view of their own countries: it is with the view of retirees abroad. EXPArTexpo aims to emphasize this “Third ART” that Expats are developing in Mexico.
