Can Serrat is a Catalan farmhouse located in El Bruc (Montserrat), 45 km outside of Barcelona. One of the oldest international residency programs in Catalonia, it has welcomed artistic and literary projects since 1989.
The organization is focused on supporting and guiding the creative process through individual and collective meetings, and an extensive professional network. The house can house up to 35 people from a diverse range of countries and disciplines, and which allow for rich exchanges.
In 2020 the space activated a multidisciplinary coliving program, as well as an online project that offers support, advising, and collective creation workshops called REMOTA.
Can Serrat receives support from the Generalitat de Catalunya, and is a member of Xarxaprod, a network of artistic production centers in Catalonia.
