Founded 2008
Pérez Zeledón, Costa Rica


The artists residency program began in 2008, with an innovative focus on art, while offering a personal touch to nurture the artist’s creative process, and to provide artists whose hectic lives are filled with distraction the freedom to contemplate, be inspired and feel renewed and respected. Our program is for artists of many disciplines who want to be immersed in a world free of distractions – and feel embraced and secure to create what they came to accomplish.
