En una hacienda incrustada en las faldas del Sumapaz, el día comienza oficialmente  para todos los artistas cuando se grita “a comer” para llamar a la mesa. Cada quien coge su plato y se sirve un desayuno vegetariano compuesto de productos locales como la guatila y el café que cultivan los vecinos y productos que vienen de afuera como la miel de maple que alguien trajo de Vermont o la mantequilla de maní que viene en tarro de vidrio y se consigue en los supermercados gringos.

Crisis and Opportunity

It is no secret to anyone that humanity is in the middle of one of the most acute crises in its history. However, each crisis represents opportunity. And I want to be part of the solution and not part of the problem.

International Women’s Day

We are in a point in history where the old structures inhibiting the full power of women are slowly eroding. Let us continue the journey, and celebrate all women, individually and collectively, who have helped ArteSumapaz become what it is: the women who’ve worked here; the women who’ve made art here, the women who’ve doctored; the women who have farmed; the women who have written, and painted, and sculpted, and photographed, and edited, and cooked, and fermented, the women who’ve inspired, who’ve played music; have sung; and informed, and led – the women who’ve helped us all live; in work and play and fully participate in the richness that is life.

The poetic act of the dance of life

The Artist in search of Totality

When the seed of my father fertilized my mother’s egg, a new organism was born. Initially a Stem Cell; a living being, sacred, made up of atoms as old as the Universe itself and with all the genetic information necessary to make me who I am. This first cell reproduced, multiplying and creating new cells in a magical alchemical process of mitosis.

Announcing volunteer/residency opportunities

As we enter our seventh month here at ArteSumapaz, we are so grateful for the many volunteers who have shared their time and energy with us. Volunteerism wasn’t really a part of our dream to begin with, but a chance meeting with someone who had participated with the volunteer platform Workaway turned us on to the possibilities; and since then, we’ve had over 30 volunteers from all around the world!
