Description of residency program
Gracia is a multi-disciplinary residency in the outskirts of Antigua Guatemala offering a platform for creative experiments and space for togetherness. The residency hosts artists and non-artists across all fields to support research, conversation and connection surrounding creative work, process and purpose. 

Duration of residency
10 days. If you are interested in a longer residency program, email us to consult pricing and availability. 

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
Open to artists, thinkers, writers, scientists, artisans, designers, magicians, earth beings committed to research, practice, and openness to discover. 

You don’t need to be an artist or a creative person to apply – that language may appear but please let it be clearly known ANY person working or not working in ANY FIELD or profession or practice is ENCOURAGED to apply.

Expectations towards the resident
Residents work independently on proposed project or research. General orientation, research assistance and guidance towards local resources are available throughout the residency by the residency Director and local artist Mafer Hernández. We assist with project development and research as much as possible to create a platform of support, conversation, reflection and accessibility.  That said, all needs and desires are not always possible to access and the primary work does lie in the hands of resident themselves.  

Residents are also encouraged to do nothing, to rest, to not work. To read one book slowly. Or go into town everyday and explore. You may design this residency however you wish. 

Accommodation, Studio/ workspace
Residents have a private room & shared bath, full access to common spaces, kitchen with basic cooking supplies, a non-perishable food pantry, a garden to spend time in, and a private deck / studio open to a garden with tables, basic materials and wall space.

At this time Gracia hosts one resident or two collaborators at a time in our home located near Antigua Guatemala.

Fees and support
