Art and Regeneration are not new subjects, but they are undoubtedly current themes, equidistant paths, above all due to the importance of systemic and creative thinking and acting.

It is in the incessant search for satisfactory answers and differentiated and urgent practices in the daily life of our existence and the world that Art  – understood from the fields of creativity, languages and communication, which have always had their evolutions intertwined with the socio-cultural transformations of each era, preceding it, making it explicit and nurturing it – and Ecology – understood as the systemic organization, its dynamics and relational qualities between different elements – are addressed here.

In this approach, it is not an apology for an ecological art or a romantic return to untouched nature, or even living in the countryside as the only interesting way of life. Neither living in a bubble, dependent on the most amazing technology or even populating another planet.


Rather, recognizing and understanding the critical and creative production that dialogues with the ethical principles and values of deep ecology and the establishment of relationships of respect and balance with the environment and living beings, to collaborate with the existence of the diversity of species and cultures, feeding on it and vice versa.


In this way, without crystallizing any kind of label or waiting for formulas, traditional knowledge and what little remains of the wild environment are preserved, at the same time that the paradigm of regeneration is generated that nourishes cultures, vocabularies and more practices. creative activities in fields of conscious action.
