About The Residency

Hotel Belmar's Artist Residency Program offers local and international artists the unique opportunity to reside at our hotel for two to three weeks, providing a dedicated space for their creative work in our distinctive cloud forest location.

We welcome artists who share an interest in nature, Monteverde's cultural nuances, or the social dynamics of a hotel setting. Whether your medium is drawing, painting, sculpture, writing, performance, or any other form of artistic expression, our program is designed to accommodate diverse creative endeavors.

The unparalleled beauty and tranquility of the cloud forest environment will serve as a wellspring of inspiration. Artists will have the chance to conceive, develop, and exhibit their original works, drawing inspiration from the natural surroundings, the local community, and the transient nature of the hotel environment.

Application Process

Our application process occurs four times a year and is open to artists worldwide. We evaluate applications based on project feasibility, artistic quality, and alignment with our vision. Interviews may be conducted, and selected artists receive guidance and support for their stay.
