Artist residency designed for visual artists, musicians, writers, architects, clay artists, performers, and other makers.
We believe that a key part of the AIR experience is the commensality – those wonderful conversations we have while sharing a glass of wine and a good meal. Thus, the idea of these new restrictions are daunting; yet needed for going forward in the near future.
- Travel to Colombia now requires proof of vaccination. Please see the official web pages for updates. In general, we find the US Embassy website is helpful. https://co.usembassy.gov/covid-19-information/
