Founded in 2009 in Puebla, Arquetopia is an award-winning, Mexican official nonprofit foundation promoting Development, social transformation and productivity through artistic, cultural, and educational programs. Arquetopia has since grown to include the premier artist residency program in Latin America with extensive collaborative networks in Puebla and Oaxaca, Mexico. Our resident artists have come from dozens of countries on six continents. We are proud that many of our artists have returned for residencies with us multiple times. In contrast to the many vacation rentals, spa resorts, and B&B’s being advertised as part-time quasi art centers, both Arquetopia and Arquetopia Oaxaca have always been productive spaces exclusively for artists, art professionals, and writers and include structured programs; a network of collaborative workspaces, institutions, and studios; and project support.
Our Artist-in-Residence Programs offer competitive professional opportunities for emerging and mid-career, national and international artists, designers, curators, art historians, art educators, cultural researchers, writers, and journalists age 25 and over.
