Through Culture + Art
Ancient knowledge in modern times, illuminated through exhibitions, film, projects, seminars, books, education, workshops, retreats, and exotic rainforest products. We offer you a dynamic multifaceted space to explore the mysteries of the Amazon jungle and how it relates to the world today.
By embracing a multidisciplinary approach
we promote learning about Amazon art and culture through an integrated platform unifying adventurers, artists, filmmakers, musicians, shamans, anthropologists, ethnobotanist, seekers and all of the men, women & children of Amazonia. In addition, we seek to building mutually beneficial partnerships with indigenous artists and communities to better represent
their art and knowledge.
