Our mission is to have on going functional relationships between artists, the environment, the on site animal sanctuary and permaculture gardens. We seek artists that find pleasure engaging in this holistic approach with a respect for nature, animals and sustainable living.

Artists are encouraged to develop and experiment in their medium while creating works that would contribute to the functionality and aesthetic of the various aspects of the property in forms such as but not limited to: murals, sculpture, mosaic, stucco relief, installations and creative landscaping functioning with elements of the permaculture garden, functional architecture for wildlife and animal sanctuary, photography, video, 3D projection, accoutrements for leisure, yoga and fitness. Art created while at the residency not intended to stay on site will be showcased for merchandising, artist promotion or be donated back to the artist.

Opportunities to visit the old city medina to meet local artisans and learn about their craft and techniques unique to the Moroccan culture will be arranged on an ongoing basis specific to artists? program.
