Artistic call-out for residency April-September, 2024
 

  • Part 1 (14 April – 8 June)
  • Part 2 (18 August – 28 September)

 
Who are we?
 
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.
 
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:
 
SUBVERSION MATTERS
 
We are purposefully keeping the theme as broad as possible, and encourage you to
think as tangentially as possible. 

Duration of residency
4 weeks / 6 weeks / 8 weeks
We have 5 starting dates:
14 April (4, 6, 8 weeks)
28 April (4 and 6 weeks only) 12 May (4 weeks only)
18 August (4 or 6 weeks only) 1 September (4 weeks only)
In your application please state which is your preferred starting date and if you would like to do 4, 6 or 8 weeks.

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 
 a library and several indoor and outdoor working spaces. 
 
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
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.
 
Studio / Workspace
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.
 
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
€227.27 per week + VAT ( total of €250) - 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.
 
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.
 
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, take
risks, 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.

Isla De Crear, 23400 Ubeda, Spain
