Situated on an old parking lot they developed into a cultural park using reclaimed materials, Tiuna el Fuerte now hosts a hip-hop school, a youth orchestra, a mobile community radio, and serves as an example for an alternative space for the community. The space is a “nucleus of endogenous cultural development,” exemplifying the concept of local development of the people, for the people, by the people that finds its roots in modern day Venezuela.
