Program Description

Can Serrat is a live/work space that supports writers and artistic production. We offer individual support and resources to each resident as need be. Nos llamamos así is the second edition of a collective narrative project. The jury (composed of members from g_b, Cajon de Sastre and Can Serrat) will select participants according to the relevance of their work in general, and how recent projects connect to Can Serrat's context and lines of thought. Residents will have the time and space to work on their own writing projects while in residence; additionally-- and specifically for this open call--we ask participants to dedicate part of their time here to contribute to the production of a collective narrative that we will develop together.
