Kinross Chile hosts virtual ‘Atacama Festival’ for community!

Last week, Kinross Chile partnered with the Ministry of Culture to host the 2021 ‘Atacama Festival’ – a virtual event that brought together local performers for a five-day festival to showcase arts, culture and heritage of the Atacama region.

Over the course of the event, attendees had the opportunity to join various workshops, presentations and activities that taught them new skills, and allowed them to engage with new faces from the community.

This year’s festival included 200 artists and over 20,000 participants on the page! Kinross also partnered with the Ministry of Culture to provide 2,000 workshop kits that were delivered to participants’ homes to ensure they were equipped with relevant resources to participate in each activity.

“The Atacama Festival was an excellent opportunity to connect with our communities virtually while reinforcing the pillars of arts, culture and heritage that make up the community,” said Guillermo Olivares, Manager, La Coipa. “At Kinross, our people come first and we are proud to share this event with the community to learn more about their culture and the diverse talent in the region.”
