“My own experience at the center far exceeded my expectations and this had much to do with your warmth, hospitality and friendship, and your interest in making my stay memorable. Your zest for life was infectious and your commitment to opening my eyes to the world in and around CAC contributed greatly to the breadth and depth of my four weeks residency. To date, direct outcomes of my residency include two art shows (one solo and one group show), two speaking engagements, and a published article in a major ceramic journal in the United States; this, all in less than one year’s time.
There was something in the whole experience that opened my sense of possibility in the world, and I came home feeling hopeful, not only for myself, but for people of good will everywhere.

Even though we cant communicate as easy verbally we enjoy being with beautiful people who have different cultures and different paradigms than us. We love coming to this wonderful place.

Mostly I want you to know how it represents what a wonderful exchange of culture I got to experience at Curamilla. You really sparked my interest in local Chilean culture.

What an unbelievable experience and so much knowledge and skill shared. You all have (and still are) created a miracle and a piece of paradise.

I’m very happy because I worked alongside wonderful people, different cultures, each in their own way, but all teaching and learning from each other.
