We need your support!
La Sierra Artist Residency is a new non-profit initiative whose art program requires support through public and private donors. Currently, we are seeking sponsors to fund the construction of a sustainably designed artists' studio and residency building. This live/work space will also serve as a place to host artists to engage with school children and community residents from the nearby jungle villages through creative workshops, events and lectures. Andrew Ferentinos, an alumni from Cooper Union & MIT has been retained to design this structure.  Please contact us if you are interested in sponsoring this project.

La Sierra Foundation offers the opportunity to change the world, visit local villages (Porto Nuevo, Buritaca, Orinioco, Mendihuaca, and Guachaca) with director of foundation, meet children and administrators at neighborhood schools, see first-hand the murals and art projects completed thus far by LSAR. Any donations made to the foundation are fully tax-deductible in Colombia, and additionally in the United States through our fiscal sponsor, Fractured Atlas. Your coporate branding will be listed on any digital and print materials and related press features for any assistance offered.

Our artists and educators come from all over the world to build a bridge to our communities that encourages the exchange of knowledge, experience, and art, while at the same time educating locals and children so that they may grow to become the stewards of art, culture and environmental education within their communities.

With your help we can Create Community Projects Together and fund La Sierra Programming (eco-murals, eco-coloring books, art workshops, environmental and art educational programs)—and help revive artisan crafts, develop recycling and environmental education initiatives that save the Heart of the World.
