Our work in arts
What we do
The United Kingdom has a vibrant and rich cultural life. Contemporary art and culture in the United Kingdom were created and nourished in an open, diverse and multicultural environment. This in itself promotes innovative works, provocative and emotional, that share the different visions of society in the United Kingdom in the world, thus inspiring reflexion and dialogue. In Chile, the British Council looks to promote the exchanges between artists and leaders in the arts and in Chilean and UK culture. Through exhibitions, events and presentations – always associated with Chilean organisations – the British Council introduces the work of British artists to Chilean audiences, and encourages the debate formed around it.
