We are a collective focussed on 3 areas: theatre-arts, self-sustainability and social justice.
The area of our work where we receive volunteers is in our community garden, where we develop self-sustainability through organic gardening, as well as promoting urban gardening in the local area.
Our other main area of our work is in prisons. Since 2002, we guide a continuous community theatre experience in the Colina 1 men's prison in Santiago. Since 2013, In the prison work we DO NOT receive volunteers.

Room in a 3 bedroom house where the collective's garden is situated. Share cooking and cleaning.
