What is Chiquitana Consciousness

It is a project of the visual artist Leoni, which began in 2015, through art aims to generate a collective awareness about the conservation of culture and forests in Chiquitania, based on the relationship of balance and harmony with nature of the ancient peoples. .

What are we looking for

Support the towns of the Chiquitana region with projects that rescue their natural and cultural wealth, thus keeping the collective memory of the towns alive.

Who is Leoni?

Leoni, is a visual artist, since 2001 she has been carrying out artistic projects focused on the conservation of the environment and the culture of indigenous peoples.

Since 2008, he has been carrying out a project to rescue the Chiquitana culture, he has carried out pictorial exhibitions, performances, installations and other artistic manifestations that have allowed the Chiquitania to be spread inside and outside the country.

To do this, he lived for 4 years in Chiquitano towns, where he was able to live together and closely experience the worldview of these towns.

Aware of the relationship between the ancestral knowledge of the indigenous peoples that inhabited the area, with the balance with nature, he has also worked on different artistic projects focused on conservation.

Currently living in Sao Paulo, Brazil, his work continues to leave traces in those who recognize and value the cultural and natural wealth that we possess.

what we support

Proceeds from this project are donated to:

The missionary music schools of the Chiquitania, where hundreds of children and young people from the towns develop their skills for lyrical singing and learn to play the violin, cello, double bass, among others.
