The Project: The Open Air Museum in La Pincoya is a muralist social intervention project on the streets of the town. The main objective is to portray the history of the town with a deep look of popular historical reality through mural art.

The murals has an important social history in our town and country, as in the years of the civil-military dictatorship, those expressed the most horrible pain, from the disappearances and killings of our people, to murals of collective love. In those years where the consciences of the people were touched by the sentimental colors of works by muralists improvised collective of residents, and those styles of Brigada Ramona Parra, always trying to tie up all  our dreams as a united country.

Our project aims to be an activity of social commitment to the people, reflecting their own stories from the people and for the people. We seek to send a message of equality, dreaming a more equal society for our people, who suffer discrimination and exclusion in education and health, even tought debt up to feed our families, among other problems. The reality of Chile below, from our neighborhoods. The colors in the spaces of the population affect all who pass and see a message that seeks to question the reality and revive unity and social struggle, because Chile is a united country, but now is sleeping.

The murals we have done are related to the historical popular struggles : the common pot , Urban Settlements , Pobladora Woman , Workers , Children , Education , Mapuche People , etc. . Murals that are linked to historical and current social demands. For us, the mural is a tool that seeks social transformation, while tries to beautify and put joy in places where desolation is more patent, to touch the hearts of those who may question the mural, transforming the sorrows and pains of our population  to popular discontent against neoliberal policies.

It is known that La Pincoya shantytown was a place of subversive organization in times of dictatorship , organizing in the area, the failed attack against Pinochet dictator. Therefore, the population then and now yearns for liberation, which make more sense when each of its inhabitants becomes aware of the profound social injustice that affects us mostly.

Today the project has become an innumerable group of friends, muralists and graffiti artists . More and more urban artists in different corners of Latin America and Chile, who want to contribute to the cause , making a mural in the population . This inspires us to break boundaries in all aspects , because the dream is big and makes sense. Some of the artists who have participated so far correspond to artists from various Latin American barrios ( Argentina , Colombia and Peru ) and our Chile, recognizing each other as brothers in Latin America itself subjugated to the machinery of global capitalism , but is seeking his freedom.
