arteventura I ecologic artist’s residence in the Spanish inland I summer studio 2019

arteventura I ecologic artist’s residence in the Spanish inland I summer studio 2019.

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. 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.

Whether you are a visual artist, a writer, a performer, a thinker or a dreamer... Are you looking for magical quietude or swirling turmoil, do you want to hatch and grub, then this is the ideal spot. 

Duration of residence
arteventura “Artist in summerstudio” program is ready to welcome artists for 1 week, from June 1st to September 21th 2019

Application is open for everyone who is interested in art, professionally or nonprofessionally. For example: professional artists that only have some free time in the summer, individual students from academies from day or evening classes, groups of teachers with their students, people who want to organize workshops or summer schools, etc. The artists that want to work at arteventura, can make weekly reservations, from Saturday till Saturday. 

Artists stay in all freedom at arteventura. They don’t have to submit a project, nor has the residence to yield results

The finca covers an area of 25 ha of century old oaks which our visiting artists can fully enjoy at any time. In the front part of the finca we converted an old ruin into a 250m2 communal studio with an inside and outdoor workspace. 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.
The artist brings his/her own materials. However, basic materials are available in the studio. In case of need, we located a specialized shop in Sevilla, where you also can order online. It is possible to buy some drawing materials (cheap, no brand) in a local supermarket in the village.
We can help you with your special requests and are in touch with several local craftsmen mainly working with metal, wood and cork. Don’t hesitate to inform us of your less usual requests, in most cases we will be able to help you before your arrival. Our studio assistant will help you when needed (e.g. installations…).

Artists in summer studio can choose 3 types of accommodation: There are 2 individual apartments of 40 m2 dispersed along the finca. They are are set up as a flexible working area and it only takes a short hike to get to the atelier.
In the atelier itself on the top floor, you can reserve a room. You will share a kitchen and a bathroom.
On the top of the mountain, a 10 minute walk from the atelier, you can find the private residence. Here you can stay in one of the 2 guest rooms that are equipped with their own entrance and bathroom. You can use the kitchen in the atelier
