LA PARED arte contemporáneo
LA PARED's main aim is to promote contemporary art and artists from all over the world to have their voice heard on important issues and generate a positive impact on art's place in civil society. The programme focuses on letting artists develop their work by providing creative, comfortable living and working environments. LA PARED offers a unique opportunity to integrate with the local artistic communities and also the wider community, if that is what the artist needs. The residency organization helpd artists find inspiration and depth for their investigation using local culture, the natural environment or even political or social issues that may interest them and influence or provide a focus for their work.
Artists should produce work or work towards a set project but that is up to them. No pre-defined expectations.
All disciplines are catered for in studio spaces at separate locations from the living accommodations. Tools, equipment and transport of materials and works will be provided for most disciplines.
