Jiwar Creation and Society is a residency based in Barcelona. Its basic philosophy concentrates on the right to intercultural mobility and its various aspects. Jiwar, meaning neighbourhood in Arabic, promotes the idea of interculturalism through a set of artistic events that enhance the creative dialogue of artists in residence, local artists and the local community. Jiwar is currently open for applications for residencies taking place from January 2018. In the mean time, we have still some availabilities in October-November and December.

Facilities and support included
Four studios in a 19th century house and a set of inspirational common spaces, including a gallery and a 700m2 garden are at the residents’ disposal.
Jiwar gives support to the artists with their research and passes on requested contacts depending on the interest of the artist.
For all artists our staff are available for any suggestions or information needed about the local neighbourhood and the city’s socio-cultural network.
Jiwar has very limited funding means. However having said this, we help the candidates with all they may need for their grant bids in their own countries. You will find some online tools and a list of organizations where you can apply for funding on our website.
Prices range from 28€ to 60€ per day, depending on the studio and the duration of residency. These fees do not NOT include meals.
