Residency duration: 17 - 31 August 2019

The not-for-profit arts organisation Joya: arte + ecología is an arts led field-research centre based at the farmstead of Cortijada Los Gázquez. The residency offers an ‘off-grid’ experience in the heart of the Parque Natural Sierra María-Los Vélez in the north of the Provincia de Almería, Andalucía. Residents will engage with the founders of Joya, taking part in their daily routines and living in a fully sustainable environment in respect of the cycles of nature. This family-home environment aims to facilitate, through production and collaboration, creative practice and critical thinking that manifests a discourse with the environment and sustainability. Through the exploration of the vast natural landscapes, residents will also experience the effects of climate change on the degradation of the natural environment.

  • Two-week residency
  • Free accommodation and catering
  • Use of a shared-studio space
  • Participation in an open studio exhibition
