Call for Spring / Summer Retreat AiRGuiniguada Gran Canaria 2021
Residency period: 1 March – 31 August. Deadline: 31 January, 2020.
July is the Family Month, when also children above 6 years are welcome.
Exceptional artist / researcher resident / guest community, or solitude if you please, in a bold vast space that invites for musing, far away from civilization and buzzing crowds, and still within easy reach, in an unconquerable castle, a landscape straight out of a fairy-tale, in one of the world's best climates by common consensus.
We are not about consumer comfort; those who like to stay with us prefer to get one step closer to nature – both their own physique and the outside, non-artificial environment – and are not wary of adventure.
In order to be able to slow down life, we believe it is worth breaking our routines from time to time – this is why artist-in-residencies have spread as a way of enhancing creativity through (re)settling our minds. Our idea was that the notion of the AIR could be expanded by not having artists exclusively at the specific location, but enabling them to mix with academic researchers. We believe heterogeneity always helps, thus, the more people could broaden their comprehensions of their worlds, the better for humankind!
This is why we start our venture in this house, not for too many persons, and not for too few. Our goal is to host, in this hybridised form of staying, people who are ready to leave the routines of their home behind and spend time in our company thinking, working, relaxing, discussing in our house.
