Call for Entries Special Residency Project – Valencia 02

Deadline Monday 26 March, 6pm (UK time)

Residency in Valencia

Duration: 1 – 31 May 2012

ArtFunkl is pleased to offer artists a special residency opportunity for a 1 month stay in the beautiful  western Mediterranean city of Valencia, Spain.

Description of Residency

The residency in Valencia is part of a new programme “Special Projects”. These are one-off residencies orchestrated by ArtFunkl in collaboration with other artists, curators or studio groups. The objective of these residencies is to open up the scope of the network of artists ArtFunkl hosts. Artists who take part in these special residencies will have a page on the ArtFunkl website, alongside the artists who have carried out their residency in Manchester.

Valencia is a city immersed in layers of history leading up to the present day. Ancient buildings are positioned side by side with the most modern up to date examples of Architecture, and is it this contrast which gives Valencia it’s sense of intrigue and dynamic.

For this project ArtFunkl is looking for artists who believe that a chance to absorb the energy of this fascinating city would benefit their practice.

Accommodation is in a comfortable apartment on the edge of the city centre. The apartment has a double bedroom, and a single bedroom/study room which can be set up as a studio space.

The residency is most suitable for writers, or artists who work with digital media, since there is no separate studio space included.

Please note there is no Wifi connection in the building, but internet access can be found in many bars and cafes in the city centre.


The cost of this residency is £750 for the month of May 2012. This includes all household bills.
