In 2018, I wrote a blog post titled My Humongous Audacious Dream. We had yet to even move on to the property that now makes up ArteSumapaz. Now, we’ve hosted well over 150 artists and volunteers, have completed several construction projects, have participated in local community events, and are just about to sign the agreement to purchase the property over the next six year.
That, in turn, will enable us to start the reforestation project, the sculpture park, and the intentional community; meaning I’ll be able to construct my own home and studio!
The vision for the center has grown so much since 2018, but has lost none of its audacity. If anything, the project members have become more clear about how this place can play a role in helping to heal the trauma to both the people of this beautiful country as well as that of the land.
