Throughout the history of humankind on earth, different people in different geographies have developed practices that have not only sought to record the experiences that transcend and integrate different perspectives, but also searched for the modification of consciousness of both practitioners and their observers. Visionary art, like integral arts, often deal with these issues: the integration and transcension of consciousness of the individual and the individual with (and in) their environment.

Visionary art often carries themes of spiritual, mystical or holistic awareness. In the Andes of Ancash (Peru), one of the most interesting ancient visionary art manifestations came into existence in the ceremonial centre of Chavin de Huántar more than three thousand years ago. Chavin Art is the quintessential manifestation of ancient visionary art. In times of civilizational crisis (plural), visionary arts that provide wider and more integral ways of understanding the ecosystems we inhabit are important in order to help us increase our awareness about our relationships between ourselves, other live forms and the past, present and future worlds.

For the first edition of this festival, we are gathering persons interested in visionary art and Andean cosmovisions for four days in order to exchange knowledge, share experiences, reflect on visionary art and human sustainability in one of the most beautiful places of Peru: the Andes of Ancash.
