Program Description

Can Serrat, approximately 1187 square meters, is a classic old Catalan farmhouse. The space functions as a community where people from different cultures, fields, and topics of research can work on their own process, meet and exchange under the same roof. Located in the beautiful environment of El Bruc, a small village that skirts the mountain of Montserrat and is just forty-five kilometers from Barcelona, the house provides various spaces and workshops for working in an awe-inspiring surrounding natural environment. A pleasant walk along paths and trails leads one from the house to the foot of the mountain, where one can enjoy a spectacular view of Les Agülles, or The Needles, of Montserrat. Every month the house welcomes and organizes different activities in order to activate the research of the projects in residence: sound recorded debates proposed by residents themselves, an open dinner, projects’ presentations, reader club, paddle, etc.
