Jaguar Luna Center of Imagination

Description 

Jaguar Luna Arts Collective is an organization based in Costa Rica. They 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 they use. They also invite in artists to share their talents with locals in this culturally impoverished area where no arts are taught in schools. The organizers 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.

The residency is on a site designed by an artist, and built by locals who receive profit sharing and paid vacations/leave. It is surrounded by an organic food forest and a lush river. The residency is 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.

Outcome 

Interaction with the ecology of the area and/or with the locals by teaching a class or offering a lecture on your art.

Accommodation Information 

They offer various private residencies, or shared: 2 private cabins; 1 loft with workshop; 2 apartments; 4 separate dorm-style rooms and camping.

Studio Information
