Sachaqa Centro de Arte

The Sachaqa Art Center welcomes Artists to the village of San Roque de Cumbaza, forty minutes outside the town of Tarapoto in the Northern Highland Amazon Jungle, Peru.  

The SAC is the first artist residence in the Peruvian jungle San Martin – a centre for the preservation of indigenous arts and the development and presentation of contemporary art forms, as well as a center promoting environmental awareness. The centre’s activities have a strong base in traditional indigenous Amazonian culture, while simultaneously embracing indigenous arts styles and techniques from all over the world as well as a modern standard.

Continuing collaboration with artists in many fields from around the world, the centre has initiated an Artist in Residency program, an opportunity for artists to live and work in this beautiful natural setting. You will be part of a very exciting, evolving eco-art project/movement.

Their priority is to ensure that your needs as an artist are met and to have as comfortable and enjoyable stay as possible. As artists they understand the need to be around other artists where true inspiration and creativity can blossom.
