Valley of the Possible

Fosters new perspectives on the relationship with our planet through interhemispheric and interdisciplinary exchange, and seeks to develop an artist- and community-led model for nature conservation. 
We explore the imaginable, the thinkable and the potential.

  • WE CREATE

    a refugio 
for art and research in Cañon del Blanco, a remote and secluded valley in La Araucanía Andina, Chile, surrounded by spectacular volcanic landscapes with a high level of biodiversity.

  • WE INVITE

    up-and-coming artists as well as established professionals from all disciplines and backgrounds with interests in art, science, ecology, Indigenous culture, architecture and food, to come shape the future of the residency during our first pilot project.

  • WE PROVIDE

    a space for artists, scientists and other creative thinkers and makers to contribute to a holistic worldview in which the arts, science, community, economy and the natural environment support each other.

OPEN CALL // RESEARCH PILOT PROJECT // 26 APRIL - 26 MAY 2019// APPLICATION DEADLINE JANUARY 25th 2019

Valley of the Possible seeks adventurous artists, scientists and other creatives for a research pilot program in the valley of Cañon del Blanco. For 30 days between April and May 2019 (autumn in the southern hemisphere), we will set out on expeditions (as a group and as individuals) to discover and articulate the ecological, social and cultural complexities of the valley, its history, its ecosystems and its community. The goal of these research expeditions is to connect new and old territories of knowledge with methods from field science and the arts, which will contribute to a holistic insight into the valley. This deeper understanding will help to shape the future of the residency and the creation of an on-site refugio for art and research.
