Information for the residents

  • Language(s) spoken: Spanish, English, Catalan
  • Duration of the residency: 1 – 2 months
  • Outcome of the residency: Of each artist we expect something different which we need before beginning his period of residence, a professional project to understand which is the best we can offer. For visual artists will have open studios and exchanges with other exhibition centers, for a performance a live shows of his work, a final concert by musicians … if in any case the artist seeks only concentration in his work and does not want to present their project, also gives the opportunity to enjoy their own time.
