Mas Palou Art Residency 2023

Mas Palou Art Residency 2023

Mas Palou invites up to 7 artists from around the world to spend 9 days at their estate and work on their crafts

Mas Palou, is a family-run estate that includes a vineyard olive grove, agriturismo, and events venue. The family has lived here since around the year 1500 and they love to share the Mediterranean lifestyle with people from all over the world. Arts and culture got them through the pandemic so they decided to start an art residency to celebrate art and artists. This residency is supported thanks to their guests, individuals and companies, who book stays and retreats at Mas Palou.

They want to invite up to 7 artists from around the world to spend 9 days at their estate and work on their crafts. Absolutely any artistic discipline is welcome. Expect to meet amazing people from all over the world, have dialogue, have time to create and think, food, and wine. Expect to become part of Mas Palou and to meet locals who will blow your mind. Exciting things will happen. You can check some of the highlights on Instagram to get a sense of what the last residencies were like.

In return, Mas Palou gets your delightful company and an art contribution from you (be it a physical piece, a concert, a performance, etc). You can tell them more about it in your proposal. There will be a final event with the press and guests where everyone will share their work.

The stay is free except for the food, and travel to and from Mas Palou. It includes accommodation in a room for yourself (or your art collective if it’s more than one person) in a beautiful villa you’ll share with other artists, with access to a kitchen and to plenty of space to work. You won’t be sharing a room with any strangers. Bathrooms are shared. There will be a couple of meals included but otherwise, you can cook your own food in the kitchen or go to a local restaurant.

The villa has access to high-speed wi-fi as well as a fully-equipped kitchen and on-site laundry facilities. Mas Palou does not provide personal laptops or electronic devices, or art materials. There will be some scheduled trips to the grocery store as well as some field trips to local museums and/or wineries. Additional details will be provided upon acceptance to the program.

The deadline for applying is 15 October 2022, and you should send an email to [email protected] with your full name, nationality & place of residency, artistic discipline, portfolio/website, a brief residency proposal for the stay and answer the question: Why should you be selected for this residency?
