Artist Residency in Spain. Deadline : June 1, 2017

The Unifiedfield / el campo unificado is about to launch its third residency program and the first edition of an annual arts festival in Castellar de la Frontera, Cádiz (Spain). In November 2017, six international artists will coincide in a beautiful Andalusian home at a medieval fortress in the heart of Los Alcornocales Natural Park. For this program, artists are invited to work out of their comfort zone to experiment with collaborative processes and ephemeral interventions in the village and the natural surroundings.

Besides the main residency in Castellar, there is also the possibility to develop a project in two different settings during other periods:

-Granada city: the residency will take place at an old charming apartment in Albayzín – similar to the one we had in our former residency in Granada between 2012 and 2014. This new program will focus on relational art projects in San Miguel Alto where The Unifiedfield is starting a community garden.

-A dome in a village in Ávila, near Madrid: for projects which use the dome as a Temporary Autonomous Zone for internal experiences / art processes to happen in nature.

A new website for this residency program will be launched soon with more information about the locations, partners and the communities we are engaging with in Spain. We are currently expanding our network and other emplacements can be proposed, depending on the nature of the selected projects.

The Unifiedfield is an independent non-profit artist-run organization with no external funding. To cover the residency expenses we charge a residency fee and the amount will vary depending on each project. Please note that we do not accept self-funded artists. The Unifiedfield can assist the artists with letters of invitation to enable to raise funds to cover the residency as well as the artist’s production costs, living and travel expenses, etc.
