Núcleo Arte, Política y Comunidad is a multidisciplinary work collective comprised of mostly students and professors at the Universidad de Chile.

The work group will work on models of artistic action where a clear accent meshes well with the commitment of political visibility of issues linked to specific contexts, observing strategies of reflection and creation in order to create the proposals. The aim is to enrich the knowledge that each group member possesses about these models, while expanding possibilities for thinking critically about the concepts of art, politics, and community.
