ABOUT ANIMA:

ANIMA is a grassroots organization and active family farm that aims to create ecological alternatives and sustainable ways of life through permaculture, education and cultural exchange. The primary project of ANIMA is the visiting artist residency programme ANIMA CASA RURAL ARTIST RESIDENCY (ACRAR). Situated in a rural setting outside of Guadalajara Mexico, ACRAR creates a holistic and creative space for artist, thinkers and activists through curated thematic residencies.

All Residents will have 24 hours access to the shared studio space. Studio is equipped with desks, stools, lamps, tools, kettle, coffee maker, Internet connection and kiln.

During the residency, residents will lodge in either The Main House (accommodates 4 people) or in The Metzeri House (accommodates 4 people).
