La Wayaka Current artist-led initiative offers artists and researchers the chance to develop site-responsive projects at the gateway between South and Central America, in one of the richest biomes on earth, in collaboration with the first politically autonomous indigenous group in Latin America. Here community and respect for mother earth remains at the heart of this place, despite increased connections to the globalised world.
This program offers participants a unique chance to reconnect with nature and share with indigenous + rural communities who live from the land and sea with ancient knowledge still carried through their culture.
Live this transformative experience with an international group of participants, in a supportive and creative environment that seeks to experiment and push boundaries of researching and developing progressive interdisciplinary works, in relation to relevant socio-political and environmental subjects of our time.
