Our Artist in Residence Call 2019 for Applications is now open for professional artists, all disciplines.

Studio

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 300m2 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.

Materials

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 online1. 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…).

Accommodation

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.
