OCHO is an experiment. We take a seriously playful approach at OCHO, recognizing potential, incubating creative practices and strengthening of relationships in the community .

In keeping with the diverse population and eclectic interests of the village of Questa and its surrounding communities, OCHO boasts a collection of functions and hosts a variety of activities: fine art exhibitions, the beginnings of an outdoor sculpture garden, yoga, education, film screenings, music events, creativity and art classes, community celebrations, delicious meals and not least, studio and office space.  From kids' kites to cutting edge artist videos, to one-person-shows, we can only count on more, well…, surprises!
