Can Serrat Art Residency

No Funding
El Bruc, Spain


Can Serrat is a space of creation, community, and process. As such, the activities we organize are oriented around this idea and reflect an interest in being present to that process, research, question, doubt, understanding, curiosity, and debate. Within the residency program Can Serrat offers individual support and resources to each resident as need be. The call is open to all themes and writing genres. Selected residents will have the time and space to work on their own writing projects while in residence at Can Serrat. The jury will select 16 proposals to be a part of the summer writing residency. The breakdown will be the following: – 1 fully funded grant (100% covered by Can Serrat) – 5 grant at 70% cost (570€ left to cover by the selected resident for a month) – 5 grant at 50% cost (930€ left to cover by the selected resident for a month) – 5 grant at 30% cost (1290€ left to cover by the selected resident for a month) Consult conditions here.
