Eligibility:

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: Three Months (October, November, December).

Fees: The fee per artist is $750 US per month which includes all meals, private room and bath, 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 $100 US.

Announcing an artist residency designed for these times of Covid-19 for visual artists, musicians, writers, architects, clay artists, performers, and other makers.

We’ve been brainstorming how to re-open the AIR program at ArteSumapaz. Back in March ‘20, we went into lockdown with 13 artists, and learned a lot in the process. 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. Thus, the idea of these new restrictions are daunting; yet needed for going forward in the near future.

So, how will these new residencies be different from other types of residencies?

  • ALL newly-arriving residents will be in a 14-day quarantine.  See below for details about quarantine – really, not that bad at all!
  • Minimum residency length: Three Months. After all, if you have to spend two weeks of your time in quarantine (as open as that is), you should still be able to spend sufficient time to participate in the community and focus on your work! Also, coordinated arrival dates help us take care of everyone. Start dates are Jan 1, Apr 1, June 1, and Oct 1.
  • Fees: The fee per artist is $700 US per month until April 1, ($750 after) which includes all meals, private room and bath, 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 $100 US.
  • Space for partners and children available: we always welcome partners and children, as well as groups such as music groups. 

Quarantine Process

All rooms have a door directly to the varanda or outside; so you can move freely between the house and your studio, or if, in fact, you want to wander about on the 116 hectares/286 acres of the property.

  • No communal meals – instead meals will be served in the dining area, but each resident will take there food to eat in their own space.  
  • You will have access to the library/sala and the dining room, but will be required to use facemasks and social distancing. This, and the dining room, where there is a water kettle, coffee, etc, are the only indoor communal spaces.
  • In all other instances, the only other limitation for those two weeks is that we’ll be social distancing.  
  • Depending on the nature of the studio you wish to work in – there are small private spaces, and the large communal studio, as well as an open-air, covered area.

Inspired by the legacy of such great residencies as Yaddo and Macdowell, we’ve designed our Artist-in-Residency program to be one in which visual artists, writers, musicians, and other makers, have the opportunity to experience profound growth. We believe there are three major aspects that can help contribute to break-through: inspiring working space; being surround by awesome nature; and commensality with like-minded souls.
