AADK Spain Open Call

AADK Spain Open Call

AADK Spain invites all artists and researchers who wish to work on the topics of body, territory and spatiality to participate in its Artistic Residency Program. For this call, projects that respond to  the landscape will be prioritised. The Programme is carried out in Centro Negra, current headquarters of AADK Spain, located in the town of Blanca, Murcia. It is conceived of as a space for reflection and creative research that encourages its participants to interweave their projects with the historical, cultural and geographical context of the region. 

AADK advocates for the decentralisation of culture and access to contemporary art in non-urban areas. It addresses local issues as a means to understand global problems. Currently based in Centro Negra (Blanca, Murcia) AADK Spain holds several programmes among which its Artistic Residency Program is foremost. Deeply rooted in its context, this programme constitutes a framework for research and debate where knowledge exchange and creative collaboration are always encouraged. Throughout the year the platform also holds a wide variety of activities, workshops and events. Furthermore, AADK Spain creates networks with other cultural and artistic enterprises in order to facilitate mobility for the artists that it hosts and foster their work at a national and international level.

At Centro Negra you will find support at every level of your project from AADK. The conditions of the stay and the access to equipment and materials can be discussed individually either remotely or during your stay. AADK Spain invests 850€ (a 60%) per resident in the residency program, and the Municipality of Blanca supports with the accommodation. The artists need to cover:

  • 650€ per month (40% of total costs). If the resident works collectively there is an extra cost of 100€ per month per person, only if working on the same project, and sharing the studio and accommodation.
  • Travel costs
  • Day-to-day living expenses
  • Costs of production materials
