Brief description of residency program

Our residency program consist on supplying the selected artist with space and healthy food to let him or her focus on the production of their work, this within one of the private studios of our sustainable complex in south east Mexico jungle.

From either a 15 day stay up to a 3 month period, Casa Xaan In Ná offers a retreat focused on self directed production of individual art. The project to evolve is open an to be proposed by the interested artist.

Casa Xaan In Ná interest is for our guest artist to experience a real sustainable way of life, which elegant simplicity belongs more to past times but might hold an answer to our present envirormental issues.

Casa Xaan In Ná is located in the heart of the mexican mayan country, where the heritage of this antique civilization is still a current trade in the language, food, uses and costumes of its inhabitants.

Fantastic natural scenarios to be discovered among hidden mayan ruins in the jungle, short distance to one of the most famous beach locations of the world: tulum, becoming lattely a hot spot for world class electronic music and art festivals.
