This program is geared towards the integration of art and science. Artists, scientists, and communities are invited to work together in the southern regions of Chile as well as abroad. Fundación Mar Adentro seeks to contribute to environmental education through art and additional interdisciplinary interactions through this program.
The dialogue between art and science is a core aspect of our Residency Program, a program that invites teams of artists and scientists to partake in multidisciplinary experiences that inspire creative exploration, reflection, and dissemination unto local communities through workshops guided under the following objectives:
Form networks and discover relationships between art and nature, use the study of art and science as a means to communicate issues pertinent to our natural environment.
Establish a cross-disciplinary dialogue to increase awareness of conservation and its many facets.
Provide cultural and scientific exchanges and learning opportunities for professionals based in Chile and internationally.
Share residency-generated insights and reflections with the local community.
As a foundation, we seek to foster profound reflection about nature that transcends the breadth of science and breaches the realm of art, reflection which impacts the general public on a multi-sensory level.
