Name of Residency: Jaguar Luna Center of Imagination

We are all about the artist. More than an artist hotel we open space to help you develop, encourage your muse. We strive to integrate visiting artists with a place to dive into ?deep space? with their muse as well as ?give back? to the planet for the materials we use. We also invite in artists to share their talents with locals in this culturally impoverished area where no arts are taught in schools. We believe art is a way to raise consciousness and liberate democracy in the world– a tool to create better lives. Artists are the newspapers of our world. We have a fabulous site designed by an artist, and built by locals who receive profit sharing and paid vacations/leave. We are ready to integrate all arts… the full spectrum artist, film, sculpture (primitive/indigenous style), writing, dance, culinary, garden design, music, painting/murals (in pueblos) anything that makes the world more beautiful for all life. We are surrounded by an organic food forest and a lush river. Artists can feel their work improve the region…and the world.
