After ten years in the field of art, Iris Tonies and Arnout Krediet founded this amazing residency located in the middle of the vineyards. This extraordinary place offers to artists a remote and studious place where they can focus on their own creation. Artists from all disciplines can apply for a residence period from 5 weeks to few months. After two months of residency, the artists will be offered to participate in the biannual collective exhibitions that take place in the art school’s gallery Estudio Nómada, located in the historic center of Barcelona.
