In 2020, arteventura took an important step forward and established the arteventura Foundation.
Our mission is to support artists by giving them time and space to realize new projects.


Who are the friends of arteventura?

Philanthropists who, as a friend of arteventura, want to be involved in this magical place, where artists wander and get inspired. Where they are engaged in research and development, take risks and create new and adventurous work. Friends of arteventura are people with a warm heart for art. Together with us, you become an ambassador of the project and you make art happen.
Friends of arteventura contribute 165 euro/year and enjoy a whole host of privileges and benefits exclusively reserved for the friends of arteventura.


That’s what friends are for…

Thanks to your financial support, arteventura can offer talented artists a free residency. In addition, we can support promising projects submitted by artists and also publish their work, produce publications, multiples, organise exhibitions and events to give present artists more visibility,…


As a friend, you enjoy a whole host of privileges and benefits!

• A stay at the Finca in one of the guest rooms
Only friends of arteventura have the opportunity to stay at the finca and experience the ins and outs of the project. Arteventura is not a regular travel destination, as the residences are exclusively for the artists, working in peace and quiet. The finca is the perfect hideaway for artlovers who are looking for tranquility and silence!
Friends of arteventura are welcome to book a guest room(s) in the main house, build on top of the finca. Here you have a wonderful view on the lake and the sloping hills with evergreen cork- and holm oaks. The guest rooms have a private entrance and terrace. A fully equipped outdoor kitchen, build in an old ruin and situated on a quiet place is always available to all residents. The infinity pool keeps you cool on hot summer days.
A night for 2 in a double room costs 95 euro (1 is a member). Minimum 3 nights. On request we serve your breakfast on the terrace of the main house, while you enjoy the stunning view over the landscape: 11 euro/person. Staying at the Finca is possible from 15 May till 15 October.
Places are limited so book in time! To make a reservation, send an email to

• A lunch for two

Many more plans and projects are in the pipeline.

• Annual events
And last but not least you will be invited to all annual events!
We are happy to welcome you to the first arteventura exhibition in Antwerp, as part of Antwerp Art, from 26 till 29 May 2022. In the meantime, about 120 artists have come to live and work in Arteventura. It was therefore time to organise a reunion, which will take place on that same weekend in Antwerp. Friends of arteventura are welcome to join!



Contribute to the arteventura artist grants and donate 1.250 euro/year.
The arteventura foundation aims to offer free residences. This donation will be used exclusively to finance the grants. Depending on how many donations we receive, we can extend the grants. Contributing to these grants also means that you will enjoy all the advantages of the friends of arteventura.

Become a sponsor of the project and donate a minimum of 2.000 euro/year.
As a sponsor, your name and/or logo will be mentioned as a partner on the website, the invitations and the publications. This also means you will get involved in everything that’s happening at arteventura. Technically you will become family. And of course you will enjoy the same benefits as the friends of arteventura.

No matter what you choose, we appreciate any support and we are grateful that you want to help arteventura grow!
