The foundation La Sierra Artist Residency believes in the power of art to improve and transform lives by three main focal points:
Empowerment of Communities
Recuperation of Ancestral Arts
Our program fosters a communitarian spirit among our artists in residence and nearby communities.
We are dedicated to facilitate experiences that connect artists with local residents to collaborate, exchange ideas, and engage in dialogue.
We encourage artists who apply to La Sierra to propose collaborative projects, workshops and any activities to engage local school groups, artisans, cooperatives from our neighboring communities of Buritaca, Puerto Nuevo and Guachaca towns in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta region.
We will facilitate community projects in any artistic discipline, including lectures, workshops, performances, public murals and more.
