Joya: AiR / CALL OUT / summer residencies 2018

Joya: AiR accepting applications for international residencies for artists and writers, summer 2018

Description of residency program
Since 2009 Joya: AiR has invited and hosted in excess of 600 artists and writers providing them with a creative environment free from distraction in one of Spain’s most beautiful and remote regions.

Joya: AiR is an interdisciplinary residency based at Cortijada Los Gázquez, an ‘off-grid’ eco-destination, in the heart of the Parque Natural Sierra María – Los Vélez, in the north of the province of Almería, Andalucía.

The Joya: AiR programme was founded by Simon and Donna Beckmann with the intention of making a strong cultural destination within a Spanish rural context. They believe that dynamic and sustainable creative activity is the backbone to regenerating land that has been slowly abandoned over the last fifty years. 

This is one of the sunniest regions of Europe receiving over 3000 hours of sunlight a year. Daytime summer temperatures are warm/hot, outside nightly temperatures are warm, making this a dramatic environment.

Cortijada Los Gázquez is a creative hub where there is always an inspirational environment of knowledgeable and informed thinking around all creative disciplines. Artists will have use of a studio space and 20 hectares of land. Accommodation (private room with attached bathroom) and meals are included as is collection and return to the nearest public transport system. Working languages: English and Spanish
