Our work is based on a collaborative model. Alliances with public and private institutions reflect different sectors’ commitment to Chile’s cultural development and their willingness to take a chance on projects that have a wide scope, are innovative and are aimed at different audiences.

The Teatro a Mil Foundation is a non-profit organization responsible for designing, managing and organizing the Santiago a Mil International Festival, one of the most important performing arts events in Latin America. During the year, it runs projects that are based on creation, training, touring, access and communication.

As part of its important contribution to developing and decentralizing access to culture, Escondida/BHP has supported the Santiago a Mil International Festival since 1999. In conjunction with the Teatro a Mil Foundation, it put on large-scale international projects in Santiago, Antofagasta and Iquique between 2010 and 2014, such as Teatro di San Carlo en Chile (2010), Concierto para Violeta (2011), Suena a Gospel (2012), Tanguería (2013) and #Shakespeare450.

The Teatro a Mil Foundation receives an annual subsidy from the Ministry of Culture, the Arts and Heritage as part of the National Budget Law to fund the work of its different departments.
