Every day, an artist from a specific field will visit the camp, f or example, an architect, a musician, a visual artist, a performer, and many other kinds of artists, and the activities of the day will develop in accordance with each artist’s field of experience.
We need to stay in touch with the natural environment, and with the sensory and aesthetic experience in the open.

The workshop will also be visited by experts from other fields, with whom to discover the natural environment that surrounds us.

Connecting to each other
After breakfast, we will connect to each other, and kick-off the day’s activities. What we like, what we do not like so much, how we feel, whether we would change something, how we have spent the night; the importance of taking care of ourselves and waking up together.

Experimental activities
Activities are aimed at promoting creativity, imagination and the development of different skills. Every day will focus in a different sense, using sensorial activities. There will also be personal creation activities based on the theme proposed by the guest artist, and which will form the basis of a project of collective creation.

Guest artists
Every day, a professional from a different artistic field will join the workshop. Each will talk about one of their personal artistic projects, their working process, the bond they have with nature, and will suggest a number of different activities related to art and nature.

The project
Throughout the whole week, a project of collective creation will take place, based on a proposal chosen by consensus among group members. This project will take shape using the experiences of each one of the collaborating artists. It may consist, for example, of a Land Art or a Sound Art project, or of the construction of a shelter, or of a performance, a video, or any kind of project
