For whom? For anyone who is professionally involved with art. This could be a visual artist, a writer, a performer, a playwright, a composer,… An artist that signs up individual or some artists that want to collaborate together to a project.
Functioning? The artists that come to work on arteventura, are selected on the basis of references and a portfolio. We invite whom we believe in and who we want to give a chance to create new work or to continue working on a project. Those who come, are not here by chance.Every year – in May – we will do an open call for artists in all disciplines.

Deep in the Spanish inland, on a wooded estate of 25 hectares, lies the ecologic
artist’s residency arteventura. A distinct philosophy of autonomy and back to basics form the foundation of the residency.
Not only, does the finca – Spanish for “rural estate” – offer its literal spaces, but the interaction with nature and the desire for autonomy of the estate is also meant to be inspiring for all residents. Of you, the artists, we expect a certain involvement in the whole eco-philosophy of the finca, and those want, are welcome to help out.
The finca covers an area of 25 ha of century old oaks which our visiting artists can fully enjoy at any time. In the front part of the finca we converted an old ruin into a 250m2 communal studio with an inside and outdoor workspace. The inner part of the studio can be divided into separate sections with mobile panels. A workbench with accessories is available in the outdoor part.
Artists in residence can choose between two types of accommodation:
There are 2 individual flats of ±40 m2, equipped as a flexi-workspace.
Next to the studio we offer a 2 bedroom apartment that can be used by a single artist (bedroom + workspace), or by a duo that wants to work on a joint project. We aim at a maximum of 3 artists (exceptional 4, duo working on a joined project) in residence at the same time.
