Cultural Events & Activities

Centro Cultural Gabriela Mistral: "Any student interested in the creative arts should definitely visit and follow it on Facebook/Twitter because they constantly have really interesting cultural events, art and dance workshops, concerts and other sorts of exhibits." Mike Nunziante (Middlebury College), Fall 2017

Museo Violeta ParraOffers a number of classes, workshops, and talks focusing on culture and the arts, many of which are free!

Music in Santiago: "I would also recommend for students to find and follow Chilean musicians and artists on Facebook and Twitter, because they always post about when and where they'll be playing in Santiago and random events/workshops they're attending or hosting." Mike Nunziante (Middlebury College), Fall 2017

Social Media

Don't underestimate the power of Facebook and other social media platforms to help you connect with your host community!

I used Facebook a lot to browse events and programs in the area...you can search any topic...once you start liking things in Montevideo, Facebook will give you other events on your feed. Amanda Spiller (Bowdoin College), Middlebury School in Uruguay, Fall 2016
