This is a newly founded non-profit arts and culture center located on a magical piece of terrain in the andean mountains, about three hours outside Bogota: hosting Artist-in-residencies and workshops, concerts, and developing a program in reforestation and sustainable living.
Help with Eco project
The biggest focus here is art and music. Inspired by Black Mountain College and other alternative art schools, this is a place where culture, above all, is part of the air. Volunteers will share in this environment of artmaking (and are invited to spend time making art, too!). Also, as we are involved with activities around reforestation and agriculture, and the creation of a game-changing cultural entity in Colombia, participants will have an opportunity to learn from these activities, and the discussions and planning around them.
We have several major programs we’re initiating here - and thus, we believe the best way to work with volunteers is to share the whole landscape of activities, and for you to identify where your passions lie. We’re just starting our organic garden project: We want to develop a network of trails traversing our 260 acres, including portions of the camino real. We also are looking to revive a couple of old structures. Volunteers will be involved in the helping of cutting back growth on the trails and around major features, such as the enormous rocks and stone aquaduct. Volunteers who are interested may also assist us in the development of our agricultural and reforestation projects.
