Collaborative project of international long-distance residency between guion_bajo residency (Colombia) and Can Serrat. During the confinement and the impossibility of traveling, we created this online program to accompany selected artists in their artistic and literary production processes. During 2023, and with the restoration of the possibility to travel, we are adapting this project.



In the framework of the PARASITIO project we collaborate with:

FORA DE CAMP_ wants to be a space for research and artistic experimentation where we can be influenced by interaction and collective exchange. It is activated in dialogue with three other art centers involved, which have a relevant involvement in local practices and the environment they inhabit: La Escocesa (Poblenou, Barcelona), Lo Pati (Amposta) and Can Serrat (El Bruc).
