From the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta in Colombia, Residencias Intermundos offers a space for free creation, experimentation and investigation for those residents which would like to develop their own projects or support projects of Intermundos or related to the cultural context of the region. Our main areas of interest are ecological sustainability / independence from the global economy / autonomous technologies / open systems / permaculture and similar. The two physical spaces that we offer for the residencies have been and will continue to be developed as living laboratories: places to live in, which aim at becoming completely autonomous after some time and through a collective construction between ourselves and the residents and volunteers involved in the program.
