The Shipibo Conibo Center is a broad experiment in art, culture, politics and the afterlife— an art project in the form of a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit cultural organization headquartered in West Harlem, NYC.

Within the setting of contemporary art and knowledge production, the Center promotes and perpetuates the creative life-ways of the Shipibo-Konibo People of the Peruvian Amazon in such a way that would benefit its practitioners.


With a focus on indigenous self-determination and territorial sovereignty as well as visual arts, music, and ethnobotanical research— which in the Shipibo-Konibo lifeway are inseparable realms— the organization’s mission is motivated by the conviction that indigenous identity does not belong to a romanticized ancient age, but rather to a technologically-anchored and sustainable future.
