Arquetopia is not a rental space but a full array of programs with substantial content. In contrast to vacation property rentals, tourist resorts, B&B’s, and sublets advertised as quasi art centers, both Arquetopia and Arquetopia Oaxaca have always been spaces exclusively for productive art professionals, writers, and researchers and include structured programs; a network of collaborative workspaces, institutions, and studios; and project support.
Arquetopia is committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our diverse local and international community. Arquetopia’s resident artist and staff backgrounds vary in all aspects. As part of Arquetopia’s mission is to promote diversity, Arquetopia actively fights discrimination by offering access to its programs and activities without regard to race, color, gender or gender expression, national origin, age, religion, creed, or sexual orientation.
