What is an Artist Residency?

An opportunity to disconnect from life's distractions and really focus on your creative process.  You can be isolated in our private house or share living space with other artists.  Being around like-minded artists that can understand a deeply creative process.  Can often be life-changing, creating deep friendships that last a lifetime.   This is an opportunity to share ideas, heal, inspire and work through ideas, in a Peruvian Amazonian setting.
