Artist’s residence on a wooded estate of 25 ha deep in the Spanish inland. A philosophy of autonomy, back to basics and interaction with nature form the foundation of the project.
arteventura offers silence, space and time to engage in research and development, or create new and adventurous work. Artists stay in all freedom and don’t have to submit a project, nor have they to yield any results.
arteventura aims to be a place where (international) artists and the communities of the region come together. In the entire region, tradition still has an important place in daily life. Yet this goes hand in hand with an open mind and curiosity about what exists outside this region. An ideal cross-pollination!
arteventura seek to generate dialogue and interaction which can be an enrichment for everyone. This works from both sides. Artists can cooperate with local craftsmen, while inhabitants of the region are invited to meet and discover art.
For those who are looking for quietude and emptiness, or rather interaction and dialogue – the possibilities of the residency are numerous.
Anyone who is professionally involved with art is welcome to apply. Not only visual artists, but also curators, writers, composers, dancers, designers, architects,…
The artists that come to work on arteventura, are selected on the basis of references and a portfolio. We invite whom we believe in and who we want to give a chance to create new work or to continue working on a project. Those who come, are not here by chance.
Applications are on a continuous basis, according to availability. Every year, in May, we do an open call for artists in all disciplines. If you want to receive the call by e-mail, please contact email@example.com.
