Program Description

Located in the midst of nature, Nectar, in collaboration with Espronceda & On Mediation, presents its art residency program offering a community-based living and working experience for local and international emerging artists. The residency is a unique opportunity to delve into the artistic and creative process enjoying rural environment and connecting with Barcelona Art scene. ​RURAL/URBAN ​This residency welcomes multidisciplinary artists and creative practitioners who are challenging the assumptions made about rural life and culture, providing a new vision of the countryside grounded in everyday experience of the rural-urban binary. By pointing out the question of how art and culture can be used as an element to create rural-urban synergies, resident artists are invited to explore and contribute to this pairing. In these uncertain times, a reunion between the city and and the countryside may be the key to society’s transition towards a more sustainable future
