Art residency in colombia, Fundación ArteSumapaz program

Announcing artist residencies designed for the reopening of Colombia; for visual artists, musicians, writers, architects, clay artists, performers, and other makers.

We’re not quite out of the woods on the COVID epidemic, but international travel has been reopening all around the world. Back in March ‘20, we went into lockdown with 13 artists and learned a lot in the process. Since then, we’ve hosted another dozen or so artists with extra precautions to keep everyone safe, yet maximize the artist’s experience. We believe that a key part of the AIR experience is the commensality – those wonderful conversations we have while sharing a glass of wine and a good meal, along with the freedom to focus on your work.

Residency length: Two months (June-July).
Fees: The fee per artist is $775 US per month which includes all meals, private room and bathroom, and studio space. Artists are responsible for their own materials and transportation to and from ArteSumapaz. We have a special car and driver available for pickups from El Dorado Airport in Bogotá for about $85US.
Duration of residency: 1-2 months. We recommend taking a residency longer than 1 month so you can have enough time to get used to the space, connect with other artists, and create. One month residency is also available.
