Our mission is to promote the arts and research in Riberalta and in Bolivia while fostering intercultural exchange between international and local people from different backgrounds but with the same interests.

Sustainable Bolivia offers a unique experience in a beautiful, biodiverse and rich by its culture part of the world, whether you can get inspired by the settings and take some time to produce and share your arts, where you might want to do your own research or contribute to some of our existing projects.

Art Residency

Sustainable Bolivia’s Art Residency Program began in 2009. In an effort to maintain this cultural exchange, as well as develop a tradition within our organization, SB decided to work alongside local artists to develop an art residency program.

The Art Residency Program is available to all artists from any country regardless of age, gender, or medium. The residency focuses on the disciplines of visual arts but we will also consider applications from other mediums including creative writing, music and dance.
