Casa de Velázquez

Casa de Velázquez


Casa de Velázquez is both a centre for artistic creation and a centre for research. It is run by the Ministry of Higher Education and Research. Since its foundation in 1928 it has included both an artistic section and a scientific section. Casa de Velázquez's mission is to carry on creative activities and research relating to the arts, languages, literatures and societies of Spain and Iberian and Ibero-American countries.

Its tasks also include assisting in the training of artists, researchers and teacher/researchers and taking part in the development of artistic and scientific exchanges between France and the other countries concerned.

Casa de Velàzquez selects for one year periods, renewable for one further year, pre- or post-doctoral researchers working in the area of Human and Social Sciences in fields relevant to the geographical areas of interest. The artists—recruited for the same period—are accommodated at the residence. Any disciplines—painting, sculpture, engraving, architecture, musical composition, cinema and photography—may be represented. Casa de Velázquez also grants short-term scholarships (for artists, researchers and pre- and post-doctoral students).

Casa de Velázquez offers rooms to artists (architects, filmmakers, composers, photographers, plastic artists and video artists) whose trajectory, together with the quality of the project, justify a stay in Madrid. Around 30 artists are welcomed each year for stays between one month and one year. Casa de Velázquez directly funds part of these residences (members, specific grants), while collaborative scholarships are funded by public or private institutions.
