Open Call for Autumn – Winter: Cruce, Space for Transformation at AADK Spain

AADK Spain invites artists to apply for a residency that would take 2 weeks or 2 months depending on the choice.

Cruce, Space for Transformation is an initiative intended for professionals who need to disconnect from their daily rhythms, those who need a space to create, hold workshops, events or exhibitions, focus on analysis and dissemination of their work; or just make a temporary withdrawal.

Surrounded by nature, the rural environment of Blanca allows one to enter the traditions and customs of a town in southern Spain, as well as being in coexistence with an artistic community. Cruce is a program designed to bring together resources, spaces and knowledge. It facilitates the encounter between people of different origins, trajectories and ideas, with the common interest of being part of a temporary and caring community and of sharing experiences and knowledge.

AADK Spain is an artist-run platform that currently has its headquarters in Centro Negra (Blanca, Murcia) where it develops various programs. It advocates for the decentralization of culture and access to contemporary art in non-urban areas. The program Cruce, Space for Transformation is created to broaden the spectrum and invite a wider audience to benefit from what the platform has to offer.
