ALMA CREA ARTISTIC RESIDENCE

Artistic Residence Programme for Sculptors

 


 

The Almacelles City Council considers it essential to support culture and, specifically, the plastic arts, within its ALMA project, which began in 2019.
It is very important to provide young people with support and access to training and the professional world.
ALMA Crea was born with the aim of reinforcing and disseminating sculpture, which we understand as one of the most important forms of artistic expression.
For this reason, an annual artistic production program has been launched, especially aimed at giving financial support and visibility to emerging young artists and their projects.
The first edition of the ALMA Crea artistic production program will begin in 2023, with the call for the selection of a single project.

BASIS

Taking into account the difficult circumstances that sculptors, especially younger ones, often face in order to carry out a large-scale artistic project, ALMA Crea is a comprehensive support program for monumental sculpture projects that, due to the cost of materials , the difficulty in handling the pieces and the complicated commercialization of monumental sculpture, it is probable that they could never be developed.
Once the call has been opened and the different projects have been assessed, the selection of one of them will be made, the production of which will be entirely the responsibility of the Almacelles City Council.
Any artist or group of any nationality and under forty years of age at the close of the call may participate.
The program also includes an economic endowment destined to defray all the expenses of the artist whose project is selected during the period of time set for its realization (accommodation and meals).

Once the work is finished, it will become part of the sculptural heritage of the Villa de Almacelles, who will decide its location.
During the period of execution of the work, and consequently awarded a grant by ALMA Crea, the artist must guarantee exclusive dedication to the grant project.
