In November 2012 the Centro Comunitario Puerto Abierto was inaugurated, as a space to articulate programs and initiatives to respond to the multiple needs arisen from the community and to be a leading player in their development.
Over the past five years, Puerto Abierto has placed itself as a space that is valued by the community of Puchuncaví, where we promote cultural and cooperative initiatives, such as shows, workshops, and courses, in partnership with other cultural, artistic, academic and social actors in the region.
Puerto Abierto is a private non-profit organization with a board of directors represented by Puerto Ventanas S.A.´s General, Finance and Sustainability managers. The management of this corporation is led by a General Manager whose primary mission is to implement its masterplan, to secure efficient use of the resources and ensure active participation of the community in all of Puerto Abierto’s activities.
Some of the main objectives of the corporation are:
To add value to the city of Punchuncavi, developing activities that promote tourism and the community’s cultural essence.
To generate supporting initiatives and activities to improve the quality of life of the city’s inhabitants.
To promote dialogue and a permanent relationship with the community
To be a space to develop different activities and initiatives, considering the interests of the community and their social organizations.
To promote the involvement and participation of social organizations in the creation of initiatives and activities.
The most important priority of the community center is the people who participate in the workshops, cultural, recreational and educational activities it runs.
Likewise, it supports the company workers and their families, many of whom are part of the neighboring communities and actively participate in its annual activities.
