Eligibility:

Isla de Crear is a creative centre, combining a range of different disciplines in order to explore creating and crafting in a new method, away from commercial constraints or industry guidelines, based on the principles of the Fantasism manifesto. We are open to people of all ages and backgrounds, and only ask that you have a keen interest in pro-actively seeking the strange and unique connections, through interdisciplinary and international collaboration.

The centre is located in Úbeda, in the Jaén region of Andalusia, southern Spain, where the sun is out 300 days of the year, in the middle of the Sea of Olives, with no neighbours for miles, but we are by a main road (so it can get noisy sometimes), just outside Úbeda, a UNESCO world heritage site and home to a buzzing community of artisan craftspeople and a lot of cultural events.

The residency call out

For our new call-out, we are looking for artists, craftspeople, thinkers and creatives from all different fields to explore the theme:

QUEERIOUS : DISRUPTION

We are purposefully keeping the theme as broad as possible, and encourage you to think as tangentially as possible. We are not looking for the same ol’ works, but instead want to encourage all our visiting creatives to challenge themselves into doing new things and exploring new forms.

We are particularly interested in people who wish to work with found objects and repurpose them, as our junk yard is full of materials, but we are open to all forms of creations: visual, performative, audible, theoretical, scholarly, written, etc.

Duration of residency

Between 4-8 weeks.

In your application, please make sure to specify when you would like to come and for how long

Accommodation

We offer all creatives a private en-suite bedroom (with a toilet and shower), with a shared living space, which includes: a kitchen, a large living room, laundry facilities (to be used in agreement with the team), a library and many indoor and outdoor working spaces. All activities will be arranged with the other creatives and the team that live in the property. Creatives are also required to adhere to cleanliness and behave in a courteous and non-discriminative fashion. Rooms should be kept clean and returned in the same state they were when arrived.

Isla de Crear is located 6 KMs from the nearest town of Úbeda, and comprises of a large scrap yard, which you will be allowed to use at the discretion of the team.

Apart from the communal kitchen, you will have the option of opting in for other meals cooked by the team.

Do note that there is no public transport available between the centre and Úbeda, but we do offer regular rides to town for shopping and there is a taxi service available.

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance

We welcome artists and creatives from all ages, disciplines, backgrounds and nationalities. We particularly encourage people who are looking to make new links between different forms.

Apart from your own private bedroom, you will receive a private or shared working space (depending on your needs), as well as use of the different studios and workshops. You will also have access to some materials in the scrap yard.

We welcome groups/companies wanting to apply together, especially for the performing arts, but please note that each creative will need to pay a separate participation fee. For groups of 3 or more, do get in touch for discounts.

If you would like to bring in performers for a short period during your residency, please discuss with us.

We recommend creatives bring their own materials/tools. We may be able to help purchase materials for you, so do feel free to reach out to us to discuss your needs. Do note that it is also your responsibility to arrange any logistics to do with taking your works back home.

Studio / Workspace

Apart from your en-suite accommodation and shared living spaces, we offer 8 different work spaces, a 50 sqm dance studio with a wooden floor, which can be used for rehearsals, a 300 sqm workshop space with machinery, some materials that can be repurposed, access to an office and supplies, a library, outside spaces, adorable animals and our support and advice, but we ask that you read the Fantasism manifesto and ensure you subscribe to it.

We also have a wood workshop and metal welding area. The machinery can only be used by people with the relevant experience at dedicated hours.

Fees and support

We want to be able to accept creatives regardless of their financial situation, but as a not-for-profit co-operative, we are limited with how much we can offer.

If you would like to come but can’t afford the participation fee, we are open to the possibility of you donating skills that can be useful to the centre. Please include in your application a statement (not more than 500 words) about why you are unable to contribute towards your stay.

Participation fee:
€181.25 per week + VAT (€199.40) - minimum 4 weeks.

This fee goes towards running costs of the property, utilities (Wi-Fi, water, electricity, cleaning supplies, etc...), upkeep of the facilities, administrative tasks, and consultations. The fee also covers a pick-up and drop-up from Úbeda bus stop, or Ubeda/Linares train stations.

If you are selected as one of our participants, you will be required to pay a deposit of €300 within 10 days of your acceptance, to secure your place. This deposit will be returned at the end of the residency, upon inspection of the room, assuming there were no damages. In case of cancellation of the residency, this deposit will not be refunded.

Creatives should cover the participation fee, their travel costs, daily expenses, and cost of production of personal works beyond basic supplies provided by the residency. We can help with an acceptance letter for any funding applications that the creatives apply for, but we can not help with visa applications.

We do our best to ensure guests’ safety at all times, but we cannot take responsibility for personal illness, injuries, or accidents. Nor can we take responsibility for lost, stolen, or damaged personal belongings. Please make sure you have adequate travel and health insurance prior to travel.

It is advised for creatives to have their own transport, but if not, we will help with local travel needs, or there is a taxi service.

Expectations towards the artist

The aim of the residency is to investigate new forms of working and to create outside of the artists' comfort zones. We want creatives to explore, experiment and take risks.

The process will be supported by weekly meetings with the resident curator to discuss the progress of the work.

The aim of the residency is to explore, and the focus should be on experimentation and not on results. For that reason IDC, does not offer an exhibition/performance at the end of the process.

Revela'T Festival

Type:

Country:

Eligibility:

The call for exhibitions is open to all photographers who have an analogue project and the ambition, desire and motivation to show it to the world by exhibiting at the first festival of contemporary analogue photography on the planet.

We are looking for interesting proposals, which are linked to the theme of the edition "Paths" from original perspectives and points of view. Revela'T is a projection platform that puts on the same level and embraces internationally important photographers with emerging photographers because we believe in the strength of the projects and in the importance of giving opportunities to authors who may not yet have a recognized trajectory, and thus, Revela'T is a means of international projection in this first stage of its path.

Three winning projects will be selected to be exhibited at Revela'T Festival 2023, but all participants will be given the opportunity to share their project in a digital screening that will take place at the Festival's main venue. 

THEME 2023

There is a popular expression that says that all roads lead to Rome, meaning that there are many roads and ways to reach the same goal.

When the Revela'T festival was born, we couldn't even imagine where this journey would take us. We have been taking paths, which have led us to others, better, worse, long, short, pleasant and occasionally some crossroads.

There may be many Romes, perhaps as many as paths, but we are interested in what you want to tell us about. The personal ones or the foreign, the path that takes you or the one that brings you back, the imaginary, the fictitious, the one you have chosen or the one that has been imposed on you, the marked path and the deviations you have been taking. The one you were destined to walk or the one of the Peripatetics, the path of another or the one that will never be yours enough. The path of life, with its stones and joys. The literal path, which gives us the opportunity to discover new landscapes, put ourselves at the feet of another passerby to be able to see with our eyes what yours have seen.

Surely you will find your way to send us that project that you want to show the world and hopefully it will be chosen to be exhibited at the next edition of the Revela'T festival, in June 2023.

How far you want to arrive?

To fulfil this requirement is essential that the curator submits documentation about the venue, center or gallery where the works will be later presented, and the agreements reached with the head in charge of the institution. The project must be developed during a month between 06.15.2023 and 12.10.2023.
7.- Depending on the situation derived from the COVID-19 pandemic, the residence, the studio visits with the artists and the formalization of the exhibition may be altered.

8.- The production fund will be available only at the starting of the exhibition.
9.- The curator must be available to attend, in her/his work space, those meetings with artists, curators, critics and other relevant figures of the contemporary visual arts that are programed by SAC’s managing team.
