TÃ³xico is a creative think-tank, a cultural salon.
Our projects vary from month to month:
TÃ³xico is constantly recreated in a modular, flexible fashion: a fluctuating beehive structure. We group and regroup, collaborating with many of Mexico’s most talented creative people, across disciplines; both the experienced and award-winning professionals, plus the young students that will surely be influential in the things to come.
We like exploring the gray areas between disciplines, the outer edges of our respective languages, looking for different ways of coming together to create unique contents and international projects. And even though TÃ³xico’s projects change constantly, they do have certain points in common: the relentless belief that imagination is not a luxury. That excellence is contagious. That intoxicating ideas are the best fuel for the creative mind.
