  • Description

    Description

    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.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

Also a way to see the alternative side of Chile, the more community-based side, the communty arts side, part of the movement to resist the neo-liberal system.
