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.

Participants will live in a big private furnished bedroom
Daily food supply / self-cooked

2020 Embracing Our Differences International Art Exhibit Celebrating Diversity





Art is a powerful tool to evoke social change. Without uttering a single word, artists can enlighten, educate and affect change around the world.

Since 2004, Embracing Our Differences has used the power of art and prose to promote diversity. The centerpiece of Embracing Our Differences is an outdoor juried art exhibit featuring 50 billboard size images (12.5 feet by 16 feet) created by local, national and international artists and writers. The display reflects the artists' interpretations of the theme "enriching lives through diversity." The exhibit is displayed annually at Bayfront Park in downtown Sarasota. The 2019 exhibit hosted 218,000 visitors to Bayfront Park, bringing total attendance, since 2004, to more than 2,920,000.

Embracing Our Differences invites you to participate in creating a world where differences are embraced and individuality is celebrated. Become a part of this exciting change through your visual art submission to the annual Embracing Our Differences international juried competition. The statements accompanying each artwork are also vital and provide insight into our common humanity—as well as the differences that make us all unique.

The winning artworks combine a deep understanding of both medium and message. Awards are given for "Best-in-Show Adult," "Best-in-Show Student," and "People's Choice" categories, with the last chosen by visitors to the exhibit. Adult winners each receive $1,000; students receive $1,000 with $500 to be directed to the student and $500 to their school’s art program, if they worked under the direction of an educator.

The 2020 exhibit will be displayed beginning January 18 in Bayfront Park in downtown Sarasota.
