Program Description

Tropic 08°N presents a rare opportunity to research and develop new artistic & creative practices in a remote natural environment between rainforest and sea, in collaboration with an autonomous, indigenous group at the gateway between South and Central America. Respect for community and nature remain at the heart of this place and culture despite increased connections to the globalized world. 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.
