ArteSumapaz is to be a center for the arts with:
- Alternative art school
- Artists Residency
- Reforestation project
- Art Park
- Performing arts center
- Exhibition center
- Agriculture – as part of sustainability, producing food onsite for community use
ArteSumapaz is located on 181 fanegadas (116 hectares, or 288 acres). The property is located in the municipality of San Bernardo, Cundinamarca. In most recent years, the property had been used as a cow farm, although historically the farm was part of a larger coffee plantation.
Each of the parts of the center would complement the activities of each group. The residencies would expose students to the thinking of international artists, while the community would create a backbone of social continuity. In turn, members of the community could participate in and benefit from the activities of the school and residency.
ArteSumapaz is focused on the arts as its principal mission.
