WRITER’S OPEN CALL
JANUARY RESIDENCY 2020
Deadline to apply: July 4th, 2019
Can Serrat is a live/work space that supports writers and artistic production. We offer individual support and resources to each resident as need be.
The call is open to all themes and topics. The jury will select the participants according to the relevance of their work with the context and lines of thought of Can Serrat. Selected residents will have the time and space to work on their own writing projects while in residence at Can Serrat. Additionally, and specifically for this open call, we ask selected residents to spend a small portion of their time here writing something to contribute to the production of a collective narrative or story that we will develop together.
The jury will select 22 proposals to be a part of the January writing residency. We are pleased to be able to offer at least partial support to every selected applicant and the breakdown will be the following:
-1 fully funded grant

– 10 grants at 50% cost
– 6 grants at 30% cost
