Can Serrat, Residencia Artística

Since 2015, Can Serrat works as a self funded project for art production focused on contemporary practices & research. As a non profit space, all private or public income is reinvested into the residency program.

Every year a jury selects six local and/or international artists -2 writers, 3 visual artists and 1 sound artist/musician- for a complete scholarship and a certain amount of artists for a partial scholarships (70%, 50% or 30%). The staff assists and develops activities that facilitate the production of resident’s projects (artistic monitoring, human and material resources, local and international connections, accommodation and food).

Can Serrat, approximately 1187 square meters, is a classic old Spanish farmhouse. In 1989, eleven Norwegian artists* bought the house and renovations began. It was privately run and operated as a center of creative and artistic production thanks to this community of artist. Can Serrat is located in the unsurpassable environment of El Bruc, a small village that skirts the mountain of Montserrat, and is just forty-five kilometers from Barcelona. The house provides various spaces and workshops for working in an awe-inspiring surrounding natural environment.
