arteventura I ecologic artist’s residence in the Spanish inland I open call february 2019

Whether you are a visual artist, a writer, a performer, a composer,… a thinker or a dreamer.

Description of residency program
Deep in the Spanish inland, on a wooded estate of 25 hectares, lies the ecologic artist’s residency arteventura. Two programs for artists and a distinct philosophy of autonomy and back to basics form the foundation of the residency. Are you looking for magical quietude or swirling turmoil, do you want to hatch and grub, then this is the ideal spot.
Not only, does the finca – Spanish for “rural estate” – offer its literal spaces, but the interaction with nature and the desire for autonomy of the estate is also meant to be inspiring for all residents. Of you, the artists, we expect a certain involvement in the whole eco-philosophy of the finca, and those want, are welcome to help out. The profits will be shared with you. Crosspollination in all directions. That is the way we see it.

Residence
arteventura “Artist in Residence” program is ready to welcome artists for 1 month, from February 1st to February 28th

Studio

The inner part of the studio can be divided into separate sections with mobile panels. A workbench with accessories is available in the outdoor part.

Next to the studio we offer a 2 bedroom apartment that can be used by a single artist (bedroom + workspace), or by a duo that wants to work on a joint project. We aim at a maximum of 3 artists (exceptional 4, duo working on a joined project)  in residence at the same time.
