  • Description


    My name is Hernán, I live in a beautiful farm with 17 hectares of forest and an incredible stream with waterfalls. Ideal to rest and connect with nature. Our project is to build a place for artist residencies of different areas such as dance, music and visual arts. We have a room for dance and several musical instruments and sound equipment. There also is a house workshop with many tools for manual work.

    If you decide to come here, at first we invite you to stay 2 nights where you will have food and accomodation, while we agree on the tasks that you will perform. We currently are in the final stage of construccion, that`s why we need help in different tasks of construccion, cultivation and general maintenance of the place.

    To arrive here you need to take the bus from El Soberbio, Misiones. The last one leaves at 5 p.m. from the terminal: It takes 20 minutes to the path that leads you here.

Contamos con una sala para danza y varios instrumentos musicales y equipos de sonido. También hay una casa taller con muchas herramientas para trabajos manuales.

    Si decides llegar hasta este lugar primeramente ofrecemos 2 noches de invitación, en donde tendrás alojamiento y comidas, mientras acordamos qué tareas vas a desempeñar, ya que actualmente estamos en la etapa final de construcción por lo que necesitamos ayuda en diferentes tareas de construcción, cultivo y mantenimiento en general.

    Para llegar debes tomar un colectivo desde El Soberbio, Misiones. El último colectivo sale a las 5 de la tarde desde la terminal: Son 20 minutos hasta el camino que lleva hasta acá.
