The Mangenguey Society, founded in 2006 by Helena Carratalà Mander and Richard Carlisle Mander, is dedicated to the preservation of nature and the human spirit through The Arts and The Humanities. It is a self-sustaining, vibrant, and active society that puts a premium on respect for self and people of different races, cultures and classes by building on our similarities while celebrating our differences. Our aim is to prove that it is possible to achieve the proper distribution of wealth and sustain a self-sufficient society, without abusing nature, while honoring the human spirit, the creative force, and human dignity.
Join us and be among the new generation of committed and creative people who want to see positive social change by cultivating The Arts and The Humanities.
The Society welcomes all types of individuals who embrace the values of Mangenguey: tolerance, self-sustainability, creativity, and community.
The Society does not discriminate based on age, sexual orientation, class, ethnic origin, or religion. Membership is open to anyone who embraces the idea of the New Utopia.
Grants are given by The Society for applicants who have vision and passion as well as outstanding contributions in their respective fields.
If you want to take part in building a community committed to nurturing talent, developing leadership, and channeling creative force into wealth and livelihood, The Society of Mangenguey is looking for someone like you. Mangenguey is a destination for people who want to experience nature, the arts, and the exchange of ideas while contributing to the goals of The Society.
