arteventura I ecologic artist’s residence in the Spanish inland I open call 2020

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. 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.

arteventura “Artist in Residence” program is ready to welcome artists for 1 till 6 months

Application is open for professional artists (all disciplines). An artist that signs up individual or some artists that want to collaborate together to a project. The artists are selected on the basis of references and a portfolio.

- Artists stay in all freedom at arteventura. They don’t have to submit a project, nor has the residence to yield results
- The artist sends in a portfolio, or received an invitation of an artist that stayed at arteventura
- The artist sends in a motivation of why he/she wants to stay at arteventura
- arteventura asks the artist to leave 1 artwork. However, this is no obligation

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.

Artists in residence can choose between two types of  accommodation: There are 2 individual flats of  ±40 m2, equipped as a flexi-workspace (e.g. table with wheels that can be moved inside or outside). 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. 

Price residence
630 euro/month/person 
End cleaning: 50 euro
* There are max. 3 artists in residence on the same time. However, if an artist wants to work alone it is possible to book the entire accommodation: 1.500 euro/month
