The Casa Urraca residency will offer artists, writers, educators, and curators the time and space to work, live, and thrive with other diverse creative people. The envisioned residency compound of three studio and living spaces encourages a cross disciplinary work environment. Families of residents are welcomed, adding to this overall enriching and intensive experience.
We intend to explore the intersections of art making and community involvement, as well as the ways in which we can contribute to a more compassionate, democratic, and ecologically wise world. Our fully off-grid structure will stay mindful of the local environment by operating within a sustainable program that is sensitive to the fragile ecosystem of the Tulum area.
Casa Urraca is building a global family that transcends borders with participants joining us from all over the world. We look forward to collaborating with local artists and craftspeople to deepen the community art practices of all involved. Creating local and global bridges strengthens our efforts to give back and work alongside the local community. We are thankful to be part of the vital and resourceful Yucatán Peninsula.
We are working right now to build this residency, and want your help. Join us in creating the Casa Urraca community today.
