Expectations towards the artist
Our artists residence guidelines are inspiring and generating artistic debate/projects in relation to nature and environmental consciousness, degrowth, social issues and human rights, with special emphasis on women’s rights and discriminated minorities. In case the artist is open for talks, performances, workshops or an exhibition we are most happy to discuss the options. Most of our artists present their site specific projects in pop up exhibitions either in Seville city or in Castilblanco de los Arroyos. This is not mandatory, if you prefer so you can focus on your work and experience without having any stress. In case of street actions, conferences or workshops we may need more time than usual. The sooner you apply the better for all of us! We expect you to be self-sufficient but we’ll do our best to help and support you in anything you may need.
