ARTISTAS POR LA PATAGONIA is a group of artists from Chubut and Buenos Aires, ARGENTINA, that was created under emergency circumstances in order to support the victims of the fire in La Patagonia. Established by local artists: Valentina Cooke, Francisco Cooke, Antú Godoy, Erica Mariana Machelett and Gaspar Benegas.
The victims of the fire are families and many members of the Mapuche community who have lost absolutely everything.
From March of 2021, after 27 days of hell, over 13.000 hectares at the Comarca Andina have been destroyed, affecting around 500 homes and dozens of farms and ventures. The fire also destroyed vehicles, warehouses and the Golondrinas substation of the fire management service.
ARTISTAS POR LA PATAGONIA has been fighting in front of the fire ever since it started and now they need your help in order to reconstruct the land that has been destroyed, rebuilding hundreds of these lost houses and properties.
