Artists have the opportunity to spend time in the studio, surrounded by nature and away from all distractions. A unique residency that facilitates a deeply creative and healing process. Learn artisan crafts from the neighboring Kechwa Lamista and Chazutino indigenous communities – how to make paper, traditional ceramics, plant pigments and more.
Artist residency programs: painting | ceramics | sculpture trail | photography | audiovisual | writers retreat
Some of the creative activity programs we offer:
Painting Program: found pigments – rocks and earth, plant pigments and ecological paper.
Sculpture Trail: On route to the lookout point of conservation area Cordillera Escalera.
Ceramics Program: learn directly from indigenous artisans of the Chazutino and Kechwa Lamista communities.
Photography Program: Portraits – Journey to the indigenous Kechwa village of Aviacion. Create a documentary realistic style portfolio. Night shots – Long exposure and night exploration. Nature photography – In the national park Cordillera Escalera. With local photographer – IG: @jqbonicelli_photo.
Periodically we conduct cultural art events. In partnership with various organizations and local institutions. Thus creating a cultural platform, which is shared and lived by merging creativity styles – in all its expressions.
We also offer individual or group exhibitions for our residents. Typically near the end of their stay. These events can be arranged in one of a number of small venues in Tarapoto.
Sachaqa Centro De Arte welcomes artists to the district of San Roque De Cumbaza in the Province of Lamas – located one hour from the city of Tarapoto at a height of 700 m.
Sachaqa stands at the edge of the small jungle village of San Roque De Cumbaza. Where we can feel integrated into village life. With only 1508 residents you will quickly feel part of our extended family community. The River Cumbaza is our blessing where we can relax on the river beach and enjoy cooling off in pools and small waterfalls.
Situated only a 40-minute walk from lookout points of – national park ‘Cordellera Escalera.’
