Do you need a space to rehearse, experiment or present your show?
Do you need an audience to test your proposals?
Do you want to give a workshop or organise an event?
(Currently the residencies at the Barcelona headquarters are temporarily suspended due to the eternal renovation works promised by the Barcelona City Council).
In 2014 we organised the first residency and meeting between artists, ACRA (Abra la Carpa Residencias Artísticas).
We detected the needs of many people and companies to find a space for creation “easy” to use and open to emerging and independent companies. Over the years we have added to the offer of residencies, programmes for the creation of new audiences, workshops, open doors, meetings with artists, active participation in the creative processes and a long etcetera ……
At our headquarters in Raval, in the heart of Barcelona, or in the peace and quiet of Llinars del Vallès you will find the space that best suits your needs.
You can send your artistic proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org specifying:
– In what stage of development is your proposal (For example: development of the idea, rehearsal, staging).
– If it is possible to exchange with a sample (from this process or from another show).
– Period or dates required (we suggest you put as many options as possible or a time frame).
– Space(s) and time(s)
Proposals without this information will not be considered.
Depending on the availability of space and the possibility or less of generating an exchange, a residency agreement will be proposed.
We ask that interested persons facilitate the work of managing the residences and try to facilitate communication by reading the conditions carefully. Due to the high number of emails received, if we do not reply within 10 days, the request will be considered rejected.
We regret this system, but for the moment the management work is carried out voluntarily by artists for artists with the aim of OPENING creative spaces outside the official circuits.
We ask for your patience.
