A rare opportunity to research and develop new artistic & creative practices in a remote natural environment between rainforest and sea at the gateway between South and Central America. Learn how indigenous communities thrive from and protect the nature and ecosystems that surround them, break-through your conventional modes of working and enter deeply into an inspiring shift of perspective. Our fluid, site-responsive programs introduce creatives to the local ecology and culture as well as the socio-political and historical contexts of the area, whilst presenting reciprocal benefits for local communities both socially + economically through our presence and exchange. We cultivate spaces that nourish and encourage space for personal and professional growth, the freedom to learn and experiment creatively, gather and find new inspiration in remote wilderness far from structural or institutional frameworks and limitations.
