Humanity is at a crucial point where it cannot forget its capacity to inspire. Resilience, hope and sustainability are key.

La humanidad está en un punto donde no puede olvidar su capacidad para inspirar. Resiliencia, esperanza y sostenibilidad son la clave.

In 2017, artist Gema Álava began to place 24 carat gold hexagons in floors around the globe to highlight locations and individuals filled with talent and inspiration. Each hexagon tells a story of growth or resilience.

En 2017 la artista Gema Álava comenzó la tarea de colocar hexágonos de 24 quilates de oro para destacar lugares y personas con gran talento e inspiración. Cada hexágono cuenta una historia de crecimiento, esperanza o resistencia.

Hexagons are the most efficient geometric shapes. Gold was created in the collision of Supernovas. Without bees who pollinate, humanity would perish. Without artists and culture, we would perish too.

Los Hexágonos son las formas geométricas más eficientes. El oro de la tierra se creó en supernovas. Sin abejas que polinicen, la humanidad perecería. Sin artistas y cultura, pereceríamos también.

It’s urgent to build Cultural Beehives and learn to walk among Hexagons. Tell us your personal story about how artists can generate change. Sign up for a seminar led personally by Álava and inspire us.

Es urgente construir Colmenas Culturales y aprender a caminar entre hexágonos. Cuéntanos cómo los artistas pueden generar cambio. Inscríbete a un seminario dirigido por Álava e inspíranos.

Just like Gertrude Stein, Gema Álava in her own way is bringing together the artists of this century, not just in one city but on a global level. She is creating her own network of creative souls. One that I fervently hope will someday rival in importance the literary and artistic salons of her Parisian predecessors.


Como hizo Gertrude Stein, Gema Álava está reuniendo a su modo a los artistas de este siglo, pero no en una ciudad sino a nivel mundial. Está creando una red de almas creativas que espero fervientemente sea rival en importancia a los salones artísticos y literarios de sus predecesores parisinos.
