Brief description of residency program

Campos Residencies are tailored to contemporary artists, designers, curators, and art historians. The residency program is located at the Gutierrez House, a 19th century coffee plantation in the foothills of Medellín, Colombia. It emerged from a desire to promote historical preservation, while being unafraid to repurpose historical structures for the present. The program seeks to foster cross-cultural interactions with its diverse groups of participants and the cultural communities of Medellín. For this reason, the events complimentary to the program are carried out in different cultural centers in the city.

Su propósito es facilitar la interacción entre grupos diversos de participantes y las comunidades culturales de Medellín.
