Name of Residency: Planta Alta

hablarenarte:, is a non-for profit art association based in Madrid. As a basic principle, we always work in collaboration with other entities in order to realize our proposals.

Our residencies are always collaboration projects with other entities and agents, and therefore often change in focus, duration and objectives.

Ongoing residency programmes are:

*Planta Alta – a residency programme based in Madrid city center.

* CAPP(Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme) – production and research residencies for cultural agents interested in collaborative approaches.

* Sweet Home Residencies – research residencies with a “personal touch” that are being run in collaboration with private cultural agents who live and work in Madrid.

Residency Programme since: 2011
