Amazon Audiovisions

Transforming global awareness of the Amazon and its indigenous peoples.

Primary motivation

The voices of indigenous youth are rising in a cry and dance of resistance in support of the indigenous minga and in the context of the city at the national and international level to tell the world "Enough is enough!" to the violation of the rights of indigenous peoples!

OPIAC 2021

We have been enlightened by the words of our ancestors, grandfathers and grandmothers, and the orders of our leaders to preserve our ancestral and cultural heritage and care for our Mother Earth. We have joined the OPIAC youth team and a group of artists to form the collective Dabucurí Cinético, which seeks to honor the historical struggle and resistance of our people in the Colombian Amazon.

Learning through engagement: how Amazon Audiovisions uses virtual reality to educate and inspire

The development of Audiovisiones Amazónicas began with a group of people coming together to discuss pressing issues related to climate change, energy and indigenous issues in Colombia. These conversations focused on the role of art and new technologies as a means to address these issues and promote positive change. After two months of discussion and planning, the group came together to record a 360-degree video dance and document the traditions and ways of life of Colombia's indigenous peoples. The goal of this project is to showcase these communities and their unique cultures at the COP26 congress, to raise awareness about the importance of preserving them for the future.

During the two days of filming, the group shared ideas, knowledge and experiences, and began the process of building real communication and collaboration between indigenous and urban communities. This project represents an important step towards fostering understanding and cooperation between these groups, and towards working towards a more sustainable and equitable future.


Tackling climate change one project at a time: how Amazon Audiovisions is making a difference

When Hector, OPIAC's youth leader, arrived in Glasgow for the COP26 conference, he was filled with awe and determination. He knew it was important to reach as many people as possible with the Amazon Audiovisions message, and he was determined to do everything he could to spread the word. During his time in Glasgow, Hector worked to connect with people and find spaces where he could hold speaking circles and talk about climate change.

During these conversations, Hector shared the story of Amazon Audiovisions and the 360-degree video that had been created. Many people were moved to tears by the story and were touched by the powerful message of the video.

A memorable moment for Hector came when he visited a garden in Glasgow and encountered several animals from the Amazon. As he observed the animals and experienced the unique atmosphere of the garden, he was overcome with a sense of connection and understanding. He realized that he was not alone in his struggle to protect the Amazon and its inhabitants, and that there were many others around the world who shared his passion and commitment. This experience further strengthened his determination to use Amazon Audiovisions as a way to raise awareness about climate change and the importance of preserving the Amazon for future generations.

Celebrating the culture and creativity of native peoples: Amazonic Audiovisions' exciting exhibition at MAMM

OPIAC and Dabucurí's video dance project was a highlight of our exhibition at the MAMM art museum. This project, which was originally presented at COP26, was on display for three months at the museum, giving visitors the opportunity to experience the rich culture and traditions of the Amazonian indigenous peoples.

We were thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase our work at MAMM, and were especially excited to interact with indigenous communities from across the country. For three days, we participated in talks and discussion circles, sharing our experiences and learning from others about the importance of preserving and celebrating indigenous cultures.

The video dance itself was a powerful and moving piece that combined traditional elements with modern technologies to create a truly immersive experience. It was a privilege to be able to share this work with others, and we were grateful for the opportunity to have a positive impact on the lives of those who visited MAMM. Overall, it was a truly memorable and rewarding experience that we will treasure forever.

With Amazon Audiovisions, we unite voices, traditions and visions for a sustainable future, showing the power of collaboration between native and urban peoples to protect Mother Earth.
