climate change supporting performing arts in Chile

  • Live with the rise and fall of the tide in the Archipelago of Chiloé, where we’ll join a collective of social justice artists whose mission is to bring professional performances and workshops to public spaces in remote island communities. From stage-building to engaging the audience in discussions about performances, you'll experience first hand how artists on the other side of the planet are using art as a medium for social change!
  • Hike through mountains and grasslands at the southern edge of the world, experience the wild beauty of the Pacific Ocean and discover the many ways-of-life that flourish in the Patagonia.
  • Walk through the timeless streets of Santiago and learn about the colonial history of South America through its architectural and cultural legacy.

Get ready for Chile: Art and Social Justice with eight weeks of Community Engagement Training. Get to know your program team, learn about the Archipelago of Chiloé and Chile and develop your skills in community engagement and project planning and assessment.

Training dates will be determined based on the program team’s academic schedule.

Chile: Art and Social Justice is offered in partnership with Colectivo Escénico Movimiento Insular and Escuela Rural Notuco.

The Escuela Rural Notuco is a small rural school located on the outskirts of the town of Chonchi, and they have an educational focus on environmental and inclusive education.

Colective Escénico Movimiento Insular is a local collective of dancers, performers, social activists and art lovers who volunteer their time every year to organize Festival Chiloé Cuerpos en Lluvia.

Festival Chiloé Cuerpos en Lluvia is heading into its fifth consecutive year of bringing together professional contemporary dance performers from cities on the mainland with remote rural communities in the archipielago, where art and dance haven’t yet found permanent homes. The Festival is made possible through various grants and funding from the Ministry of Culture, Art and Heritage of Chile.
