Our Mission 

To develop cultural, academic and artistic activities that foster dialogue and add value to the local community and visitors. We promote cultural exchange, environmental sustainability, and the protection of Mompox's tangible and intangible heritage. We host artistic residents, exchanges, and workshops and guests interested in sustaining El Boga's mission.


The Team

Casa Taller El Boga is driven by the energy and dedication of a hard-working team. In this gallery you will find some of the people who are dedicated to making your time at El Boga unforgettable. They cover a variety of tasks including cooking, service, maintenance of the pool, the garden, relations with the local community and the definition and execution of a strategy to make the foundation sustainable.

This is taking shape

Every human enterprise starts with a purpose and many uncertainties. When we created the Casa Taller El Boga foundation in July 2019, we were encouraged by Mompox, its people, its culture, its cuisine, its trades, its fauna, its landscapes. We knew that we wanted to contribute to publicizing and preserving this unique heritage. In this report we wanted to capture, in text and photographs (taken by resident photographers Cristian Torres and Mirjam Wirz, among others), the path traveled.
