La Casa has 6 bedrooms, a large kitchen, dining room, living room, garden with swimming pool and 6 shared studio spaces all for the use of the residents. We assign studios and bedrooms based on each individual's practice, but can accommodate changes once here. The house as a whole is a free creative space, so if you feel inspired by a certain corner, you may interact with it always respecting the house and the rest of the people sharing your space.

Costs

There is a daily fee of €37 a day. This goes towards running the house and the continuation of the residency program. In addition, we ask for a donation from each artist, which is to be an open conversation at all times between the artist and Casa Balandra staff. Donated artworks hang through the guest house, giving the spaces a visual memory of past residents. The resulting art collection also forms a valuable asset that can be sold over time to make space for new artworks and to help raise funds for the continuation of the residency program, supporting future artists like yourselves.

What´s included

The residency includes accommodation, studios and one weekly family meal.

Open studios

During your residency, we will have a midpoint open studios among the Casa Balandra staff and your fellow residents in which you to share your work and get feedback, and one final open studio in the form of an exhibition that will be open to the public.
