Intercultural learning through Education Art Performance for tolerance and mutual understanding

The Project “Los Loquillos Musicales” in Viña del Mar consisted of a five-day intensive workshop where a group of 20 children discovered singing, dancing and rhythms from various cultures of the world in an interactive way. “Los Loquillos Musicales” is the name the group gave themselves for the period of the project.


We created a musical performance together, which we showed to the parents and friends the last day. The youngsters were motivated to show us their own skills, which we subtly incorporated in the performance.

“Wars and perhaps even ideologies separate human beings. The music brings them together. What we have experienced today is this. It is the promise of a better world on a global level, while respecting all cultures“.
