NAT Art Residence

NAT Art Residence


The house is located in Tagle, Suances Town Hall, Cantabria, in the north of Spain, immersed in a geographical space full of human activity for many thousands of years and with an important heritage of Palaeolithic art. Altamira, Monte Castillo and Covalanas are the best-known examples of the many existing caves in the region that preserve prehistoric works of art.

The origin of art is what guides them in the residency programme, taking it as a reference for a new beginning and nature as the starting point to achieve it. Surrounded by this magic and its surroundings, residents from all disciplines of the arts will develop their projects here.

Andrea Juan and Gabriel Penedo Diego will carry out continuous monitoring and support on the evolution of your project to encourage and stimulate its development until, at the end of the residency, you have transformed it into work.

In 2023 still available dates are:

  • May 1 to 13
  • June 26 to July 8
  • September 4 to 16
  • October 16 to 28
Accommodation Information
