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 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.
For 2021, Nectar offers two residencies: NectART Artist in Residency and Creatives-in-Residence.
For NectART Artist Residency Program, Nectar will work in collaboration with Espronceda - Institute of Art & Culture and On Mediation_Platform on Curatorship and Research, an initiative of the Research Group Art Globalization Interculturality (AGI) from the University of Barcelona. The culmination of the residency will be an exhibition at Espronceda exhibition space, one of the most innovative contemporary art center of Barcelona, where the artists will present their works within the frame of Art Nou Festival. The opening will be on July 8th 2021. The artists will have the chance to present their work in an Open Studio event and gather along with guests and cultural agents from the local art scene, enabling a space of conversation and feed-back. A one-day visit to exhibitions, art spaces, artist’s studios or other events in Barcelona will be organized by Nectar’s team. During their residency, the artists will have access to Nectar’s administrative and human support and to its network with local artistic and cultural community.
Participants will live in a big private furnished bedroom.
Artists will have access to studio and workspaces 24 hours a day. The fully equipped-kitchen and the two bathrooms are shared.
