CAMPO is an American registered 501(c)(3) and Uruguayan nonprofit creative institute that supports artists-as-changemakers by offering a transformative experience in a tiny village in Uruguay’s countryside. Artists and visitors are invited to CAMPO’s various programs to disconnect from daily life in order to reconnect with their inner selves and each other. The impact of their time – personally and professionally – spent in the quiet natural surroundings of CAMPO, ripples through the local community and the world, raising awareness, incubating ideas and inspiring imagination.

CAMPO AIR offers one-month residencies three times a year for up to eight artists. They are provided with room, board, studio space, a travel stipend and dinner five nights a week shared together at CAMPO Canteen, in Pueblo Garzón, Uruguay. During their stay, CAMPO's residents are encouraged to imaginatively interact with the local community by co-producing projects, offering lectures or teaching classes, providing a vibrant exchange of creativity and culture in an otherwise remote community.

Currently, residents stay and work in the village center in various houses, including our own CAMPO Canteen, a two-bedroom rustic house that serves as AIR headquarters. They are given private or shared workspaces. CAMPO AIR is by invitation only in October, April and December.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
