La Cochera Cultural, when it was founded in January 2018, began with the mission of serving a wide range of cultural expressions for both children and adults. Our founding artists in residence cover visual arts, music, film, dance, literature, culinary and healing arts and have invited many visiting artists to stay both short and medium term, when they can share their talents with local artists in master classes and community at large through classes and performances.
