Welcome to Mexicolore

Mexicolore (‘Mexico - the Lore of the Land’) was set up in 1980 by Graciela Sánchez, for many years a professional dancer with the world famous Ballet Folklórico de México company, and Ian Mursell, an audio-visual consultant and development education specialist...

Between them they have created a unique team which has worked for over 30 years in partnership with the Museum of Mankind, the British Museum, the Royal Academy of Arts, the BBC, over 2,000 primary schools the length and breadth of England, and a wealth of institutions, groups and individuals seeking to learn from Mexico’s culture and people. If you would like to call on their expertise, please phone Mexicolore on +44 (0)20 7622 9577.

Mexicolore is a small independent teaching team based in London providing specialist educational services on Mexico and teaching resources on the Mexica (Aztecs) and Maya, centered on team visits to schools and museums, interactive videoconferencing lessons, artefact loan boxes, and a range of teaching resources, on Mexico in general and the Aztecs in particular, plus background information and advice, for schools and museums throughout England.
