FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Patagonia Eclipse is a passion project, where we get the opportunity to invite creatives from around the world to witness the most spectacular phenomena on earth : a Total Solar Eclipse. A Total Solar Eclipse is a synthesis of the mystical and mathematical and creates a spectacle that provides context to our place in the solar system and inspires the mind, body, and spirit.

To create the container for this experience, we are enlisting the assistance of an international team of creators, builders, and go getters, integrating their unique skills into a global production team.Patagonia Eclipse is a destination event. The site is far from populated areas and cut off from phone reception which takes all who come further away from the default world of meetings, commutes, and daily grind.

Most people in attendance will travel a great distance and make a great commitment to share in this experience. These are the people who we wish to commune with. Dedicated, authentic seekers of awe and truth and beauty. This experience will see a coming together of peoples that will happen one time only in alignment with one of the most spectacular phenomena one can ever witness.

The only question is… will you join us?!?
