For our second call-out, we are looking for artists, craftspeople, thinkers and creatives from all different fields to explore the theme: MYTH.

We are purposefully keeping the theme as broad as possible, and encourage you to think as tangentially as possible. We are not looking for the same ol’ works, but instead want to encourage all our visiting creatives to challenge themselves into doing new things and exploring new forms.

We are particularly interested in people who wish to work with found objects and repurpose them, as our junk yard is full of materials, but we are open to all forms of creations: visual, performative, audible, theoretical, scholarly, written, etc.

Duration of residency
Between 4-12 weeks.

In your application, please make sure to specify when you would like to come and for how long.

We offer all creatives a private en-suite bedroom (with a toilet and shower), with a shared living space, which includes: a kitchen, a large living room, laundry facilities (to be used in agreement with the team), a library and many indoor and outdoor working spaces. All activities will be arranged with the other creatives and the team that live in the property. Creatives are also required to adhere to cleanliness and behave in a courteous and non-discriminative fashion. Rooms should be kept clean and returned in the same state they were when arrived.

Isla de Crear is located 8 KMs from the nearest town of Úbeda, and comprises of a large scrap yard, which you will be allowed to use at the discretion of the team.
Apart from the communal kitchen, you will have the option of opting in for other meals cooked by the team.
