Abstract

The rich history and culture of Cuenca, Ecuador is preserved in a disparate network of 36 museums and cultural spaces throughout the city. Yet, due to a decrease in public funding and declining attendance, these sites have struggled to share their stories. Commissioned by La Red de Museos y Espacios Culturales del Azuay, our team publicized the profiles of these sites by creating a guidebook on Cuenca’s museums and cultural spaces. Through a combination of strategic observation and interviews with museum representatives, we identified general information and unique stories for ten sites. This guidebook offers a readily available and adaptable resource for local museums and cultural spaces to advertise their exhibits and preserve the culture of Cuenca.
