Build Ramps Not Walls, in collaboration with Puerto Café and Dolor Local (a community of illustrators), featured their first fundraising to create artistic murals for the skateboard park of Unidad Deportiva Agustín Flores Contreras, where the First National DIY Skateboard Festival, will take place from December 6th to 8th 2019.

Puerto Café (Morelos 540, El Centro) held this event that started at 7:00pm and had an active participation of skaters, illustrators, residents and visitors interested in this sport and the arts, who supported this cause with the purchase of food and drinks. The proceedings will be used for acquiring the needed materials to achieve this goal.

Besides promoting this sport, one of the main purpose of this collective is to beautify the public areas through diverse artworks made by talented illustrators, like:

· David Rocha, muralist and illustrator from Guadalajara.
· Gibrán Turón, member of Dolor Local.
· José Fabián Estrada, better known as Maldito Perrito, illustrator of older versions of SEP’s books.
· Niño Feo, internationally known by his stickers.

New works on the skate park are scheduled to begin on  November 30th and will be completed by December 5th, 2019.

“Vallarta Lifestyles is a platform that allows us to reach the kind of market that we’re looking for. I think that, since its beginnings, 30 years ago, it has been the best publication of the destination. There’s no doubt that part of our success is for the advertising that we have in the magazine.”

The Agency Punta de Mita

"Vallarta Lifestyles is very similar to The Agency, we have a similar client base, [residents and tourists] who seek for information about the topics that are featured in each issue; lifestyle, restaurants, and architecture, among others. And, because the way your magazines are located, we can really capture the clients we want."

“Advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles is an easy and direct way to reach all of the visitors and new residents that arrive to the destination. Of the 30 years that the magazine has been in circulation, we have been advertising for 23 years and without any doubt, it has been worthy for the big positioning that we have achieved. Besides, the quality of contents its unique in this area.”
