Nectar is a non-profit cultural organization located in the midst of nature in the off-the-grid 16th-century farmhouse, surrounded by endless forest inside Les Guilleries Natural Park, about 1h and 30min drive north from Barcelona. Nectar, in collaboration with CARLES TACHÉ GALLERY & ON MEDIATION_Platform on Curatorship and Research, presents its first multidisciplinary art residency program offering a community-based living and working experience for worldwide artists in all career stages. The residency is a unique opportunity to delve into the artistic and creative process enjoying rural environment and a great opportunity to connect with Barcelona Art scene.
