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 7-day quarantine. See below for details about quarantine – really, not that bad at all!
Residency length: September 2021
Fees: The fee per artist is $750 US / 618 EUR 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. Space for partners and children available: we always welcome partners and children, as well as groups such as music groups.
– In order to fly into Colombia, you will have to have a negative PCR test. In addition to that
test requirement, we will be practicing social distancing and other measures in your first week at ArteSumapaz.
– 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
– 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.
