The Residency

Nectar is a non-profit cultural organization located in the midst of nature in the off-the-grid 16th-century farmhouse, surrounded by endless forest inside Les Guilleries Natural Park, about 1h and 30min drive north from Barcelona.

In its Artist Residency Program, Nectar will work in collaboration with àngels barcelona gallery and On Mediation_Platform on Curatorship and Research, an initiative of the Research Group Art Globalization Interculturality (AGI) from the University of Barcelona.
The culmination of the residency will be an exhibition at espai2 from àngels barcelona gallery, one of the most well-known Contemporary Art Galleries in Barcelona, where the artists will present their works within the frame of Art Nou Festival. The opening will be on September 5th 2019.

The artists will have the chance to present their work in an Open Studio event and gather along with guests and cultural agents from the local art scene, enabling a space of conversation and feed-back. A one-day visit to exhibitions, art spaces, artist’s studios or other events in Barcelona will be organized by Nectar’s team. During their residency, the artists will have access to Nectar’s administrative and human support and to its network with local artistic and cultural community.

From an open call addressed to young curators who have attended one of the 6 editions of On Mediation (2013-2019), a curator will be chosen to curate the exhibition in espai2. The young curator will work from the proposals of the four resident artists, taking charge of the curatorship and the exhibition's communication and activation.

AADK Spain Open Call 2019: Landscape




AADK Spain invites all artists and researchers who wish to work on the topics of body, territory and spatiality to participate in its Artistic Residency Program. For this call, projects that respond to  the landscape will be prioritised. The Programme is carried out in Centro Negra, current headquarters of AADK Spain, located in the town of Blanca, Murcia. It is conceived of as a space for reflection and creative research that encourages its participants to interweave their projects with the historical, cultural and geographical context of the region. 

AADK advocates for the decentralisation of culture and access to contemporary art in non-urban areas. It addresses local issues as a means to understand global problems. Currently based in Centro Negra (Blanca, Murcia) AADK Spain holds several programmes among which its Artistic Residency Program is foremost. Deeply rooted in its context, this programme constitutes a framework for research and debate where knowledge exchange and creative collaboration are always encouraged. Throughout the year the platform also holds a wide variety of activities, workshops and events. Furthermore, AADK Spain creates networks with other cultural and artistic enterprises in order to facilitate mobility for the artists that it hosts and foster their work at a national and international level.

At Centro Negra you will find support at every level of your project from AADK. The conditions of the stay and the access to equipment and materials can be discussed individually either remotely or during your stay. AADK Spain invests 850€ (a 60%) per resident in the residency program, and the Municipality of Blanca supports with the accommodation. The artists need to cover:

650€ per month (40% of total costs). If the resident works collectively there is an extra cost of 100€ per month per person, only if working on the same project, and sharing the studio and accommodation.
