Artistes Residencies Centro Selva is happy to present the first artist residency program of the Central Peruvian Amazon. This residency program seeks to create and encourage the exchange between Amazon based artists and foreign artists in search of mutual enrichment.  
It seeks to create opportunities for artists in the Amazon region to work with international artists, and to utilize new spaces to expand their own artistic possibilities, as well as to  provide international artists the chance to study and create in a unique and culturally rich area of the world.
The CS residency is an artist run program.  In seeking to involve the local artist community, a percentage of the international participant’s contributions will go towards a fund aiding the participation of local artists.

Centro Selva Residency includes: During your stay, we will have a city tour of Pucallpa, with special interest in the art spaces that the city offers, such as Eduardo Meza Saravia Art School, Pucallpa C…
History of Centro Selva
