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 the 2022 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 7th 2022.
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.

Studio Information

Studio spaces vary according to the proposed projects and media. Individual space and shared working studios are located in the main farmhouse. Indoor and outdoor spaces (two terraces, a patio, the land of the property and a 60m2 Moroccan tent) are open to the artist’s practice. Artists are also encouraged to use the nature and the environment that surrounds us as their workspace. Artists will have access to studio and workspaces 24 hours a day. The fully equipped-kitchen and the two bathrooms are shared.

Accommodation Information

Participants will live in a big private furnished bedroom.
