Some of them are informing the public about their work, organizing educational workshops, helping women and socially marginalized individuals to reaffirm their creativity, taking part in suggestions to local and regional strategies, participating in tenders, conducting projects for the development of their community.
Because of their respect to the former harsher lifestyle, they have decided to use their association to preserve the tradition of the past.
