Asociación Cultural Centro Selva Arte y Ciencia


Centro Selva is happy to present the first artist residency program of the Central Peruvian Amazon.

The Cultural Association Centro Selva Arte y Ciencia was created in 2012 with a mission of providing a space for education, research and international cultural activities in the combined areas of art and science in the Central Amazon region of Peru.

Centro Selva offers these activities to individuals, groups of artists and the interested public.

All programs are very personal and provided in a family atmosphere. Centro Selva’s main activities have been international artist residency programs where national and international multidisciplinary artists stay and experience the Amazon region. During their stay, artists experience the region’s culture, while creating art, ultimately exhibiting and presenting their art in Pucallpa and Lima.

Centro Selva has hosted artists from more than ten different countries from all over the world. During these years we have hosted artists from Australia, Belgaum, Denmark, Colombia, Chile Brazil, Israel, Germany, Slovakia, Sweden, United States, United Kingdom, Poland, Japan, Mexico, Zambia, Peru among others.
