Intentional Communities for Artists, Musicians, and other Makers

One of the long held objectives at ArteSumapaz is the creation of intentional community; in order to create an ongoing community to provide continuity to the overall project, and to act as guardians and caretakers of the land and water. As we are now reaching an agreement to purchase the land, we are able to kick off that process.

There are two major areas of intentional community to be created;

  1. Individual Homes
  2. Eco-Village

Both areas are currently open to new members.

The individual homes community Los Guardianes, is an area in which members can construct their own homes according to community agreed standards of a maximum of 70 square meters (about 750 square feet). The contribution for members is currently $45,000 USD.

The EcoAldea (Eco-village) is an area in which members may construct their own bio-construction homes up to 35 square meters (375 square feet). There will be a shared kitchen structure. The contribution of members is currently $15,000 USD.

If you are interested in becoming a member, we recommend that you first come to ArteSumapaz as a resident for at least one month, to become acquainted with the land and project. If you are interested, please contact Ric Dragon at
