Preserving Wayúu art and culture, The Wayúu Taya Foundation creates programs based around performing arts, musicals and plastic arts, that are  integrated to several educational programs on a basic level, strengthening their knowledge in art and helping develop individuals with a sense of awareness, expressiveness, openness and creativity. In these programs, musical instruments are made and we also learn how to play them; knitting done by the Wayúu women is also highlighted.

The Foundation has elderly teachers, who in addition to transmitting their knowledge about the Wayúu culture, are worthy representatives, enablers and contributors to the growth of the identity and respect towards diversity among indigenous communities.
