    Right now we are constructing our new space in Minca, a small village at the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, very close from the Caribbean coast. The theater that we are building is with eco-architecture techniques in bamboo, wood and soil. This is a place for artistic projects in residence, in the middle of the jungle.
    We are looking for active and creative volunteers that have experience in CARPENTRY because we are making the floor and windows of the theatre.
    In exchange we can offer lodging and delicious and healthy food, in this tropical paradise, surrounded with beautiful mountains, river and very close to the sea.
    We speak Spanish, Italian, English and a little bit of French.
