Casa Tamarindo

General information

Brief description of organisation

Casa Tamarindo is an independent organization organized by active artists. We are not supported by public funds nor sponsorships so we rely on artists and visitors kind contributions.

Our residency monthly fee is US$599 for a single artist, a very interesting cost considering a private bedroom, the artistic environment and facilities.

We are open to all artists and art lovers. As a paid residency we are more accessible and easier to enroll than public funded ones, as they are very selective and competitive to accept candidates. Not only artists are welcome but writers, designers, art collectors and creative people interested in an art immersion experience. Sometimes we host also short term visitors too, on daily fees.
