Welcome to Costa Rica's premier Artist Residency since 2007. Accepting new applications beginning January 2024.
Exploring Art and Culture in Costa Rica
Because the time you dedicate to your art is precious, we accept applications with no application fee, year-round, up to one year in advance. You can be assured that your application will be reviewed through a rigorous committee selection process. You will be among your peers!
Our one-of-a-kind Artist Residency offers two options for your living accommodations and workspace: in one of our partnering Home Stays with a carefully selected local host family, most meals included, or in our partnering Holistic Wellness Center, where meals are pay-as-you-go with various options.
We encourage writers, composers, choreographers\dancers, visual artists, textile artists, performance artists, and artists in all other disciplines, emerging or established, from anywhere in the world, to apply for one of our residencies.
Creativity abounds in our community, inspiring artists in all disciplines locally and from around the world. Art flourishes inside the walls of our urban galleries and museums, as well as outdoors in nature and on the street. And our location couldn't be better: San Ramón de Alajuela, renowned "City of Poets," surrounded by the equally renowned hills of "Las Musas" (The Muses), Costa Rica.
We encourage you to join us. To be inspired by Intercultural ODYSSEYS, Costa Rica, and to be inspirational. By sharing your experience, knowledge, and skills with other creative minds who think as globally as you do, some living locally and others hailing from abroad.
When accepting new applications we accept them up to one year in advance. Collaborations and groups are encouraged. Please inquire.
From time to time an artist must unexpectedly reschedule, or for some other reason, we have space we're eager to fill on short notice. If interested, please inquire regarding availability and ask about our expedited application process.
