Guachupita is a marginalized neighborhood located to the East of Santo Domingo the capital of the Dominican Republic. It is mostly conformed by people who have migrated from rural areas into the city in search of better lives. Historically known for being dangerous and drug-ridden, this barrio lacks basic services ( potable water, electricity, waste removal) that are necessary for the progress of a community.
The 27.02 was a special day for us at VIRTŪ. First of all, we celebrated Dominican Republic’s independence day. This beautiful country is home to both our first production community and our co-founder’s home. Second, we wanted to celebrated our backers, supporters, friends and family who help us the last few months. That’s why we finally we hosted a little party in Berlin that was sponsored by Russian Standard, Rute, Helbing and Luc Belaire. Thank you all for coming!
