It provides support facilities for artists and designers and offers services adapted to production needs associated with the arts world. The centre is housed in refurbished industrial premises in the Poblenou neighbourhood of Barcelona. In addition to its international and national open call for accomodation, Hangar also offers studios, production grants and a series of training workshops for artists.

Accommodation Information 

Since the end of 2011, Hangar has a residency for artists that is located in the old house of the guard of the industrial complex of Can Ricart. The building has two floors of 80,99m2 and 62,59 m2. Each floor has two double bedrooms, a bathroom, a living room and a kitchen. Also the residency has access to a community garden shared with Hangar’ staff and users.
