OBSERVATORY / Jose Carlos Rivera - USA

Exhibitions and Events

Periodically we conduct cultural arts events in partnership with various organizations, and local institutions, thus creating a cultural platform which is shared and lived by merging creativity styles and artforms in all its expressions.

We also offer individual or group exhibitions for our residents, typically near the end of their stay here. These events can be arranged in one of a number of small venues in Tarapoto, San Roque or Lamas.

Daniel Lerner was the coordinator for the majority of our events and festivals.

Art-icles with Sachaqa - If artists would like to create a blog post about their art and experience, instead of an exhibition this is a great way to share your work with a wider audience.
