Share

Category:

Country:

Deep in the Spanish inland, on a wooded estate of 25 hectares, lies the ecologic artist’s residency arteventura. Two programs for artists and a distinct philosophy of autonomy and back to basics form the foundation of the residency.
Not only, does the finca – Spanish for “rural estate” – offer its literal spaces, but the interaction with nature and the desire for autonomy of the estate is also meant to be inspiring for all residents. 
Summerstudios are open from Saturday 1st of June until Saturday 21 th of September 2019, with a minimum of 1 week. Everyone who is interested in art, professionally or nonprofessionally. For example: professional artists that only have some free time in the summer, individual students from academies from day or evening classes, groups of teachers with their students, people who want to organize workshops or summer schools, etc. 
Are you looking for magical quietude or swirling turmoil, do you want to hatch and grub, then this is the ideal spot.

Share

Category:

Calling artists, change makers and ocean lovers to join Sail Britain’s interdisciplinary creative programme in 2019! We will be undertaking a series of voyages on the West Coast of Scotland, exploring the ocean, the coastline, it’s ecology and communities. Join us onboard!

Sail Britain is an interdisciplinary project working towards positive change for the oceans through sailing, creative practice and the development and exchange of ideas. Examining our relationship with the sea while learning how to sail an ocean-going vessel allows privileged insights into an inaccessible environment. The programme will work with crew members from the arts, sciences and communities to explore issues such as marine plastic pollution, Climate Change, singing on the sea, the cultural importance of islands, and what it means to be small on a big Blue Planet!

The voyage will take place in one week legs from late April till September. Different sections focus on different themes, but all follow our strong creative and social ethos in an inclusive environment.

Please visit our website for further details and feel free to get in touch with questions or suggestions, we’re always happy to say hello. Everyone welcome regardless of background!
