Who is it aimed at?
The arts residencies programme is aimed at both Colombians and foreign nationals seeking to develop an artistic project in Mompox in any discipline of art or research (writers, visual artists, designers, musicians, anthropologists, cooks, filmmakers, producers, etc.).
Working with the community of Mompox
In addition to their own artistic project, residents are required to propose and carry out artistic activities with the community of Mompox. These can take the form of workshops, recitals, conservatories, performances, etc. The community project may be in a different area to the artist's main project.

The selection of residents is made on the basis of proposals submitted through the website (click on the Apply Here button). The jury evaluates the quality and originality of the artistic proposal and the relevance of the community project and its methodology. Please see the selection criteria and review the profiles of the residents who have passed through the house and the activities they have developed with the community. Do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your proposal before submitting your application.
