PINEA-LINEA DE COSTA is a place for artistic research, production, meetings and exhibitions. An A.I.R. program for artists working in site specific projects whose aim is to dynamically contribute to improve the town, by involving the local community in an active way
PINEA-LINEA DE COSTA is an Artist in Residence Program located in Rota, Cádiz Bay, Southern Spain.
With a successful six year trajectory, our organisation has become a reference between international artists-in-residence programs in Europe, being one of the most prestigious A.I.R programs in Spain, praised by critics and specialised press.
We aim to stimulate creativity through interaction with the local environment, artists and cultural institutions, and seeks to foster cross-cultural relations between participants and the local community.
Duration of residency
The duration of this residency program is minimum one month and maximum three months.
Disciplines supported and technical information
ARTISTS from any nationality to develop their projects in a multidisciplinary context.
We offer to artists in residence the possibility to live in the studios: single bright studio-rooms which are provided with wi-fi, two work desks, shelves, closet and single cosy chair-bed. The accommodation is not a rental, but a free courtesy for artists in residence memberships. However, artists can opt to rent other accommodation in a different location (for example if they don't want to live and work in the same space or if they want to be accompanied by friends or relatives). Anyway, in both cases, the artist membership dues are the same.
We are strategically located between the town historic centre and the local natural spaces as beaches and dunes. PINEA-LINEA DE COSTA STUDIOS can accommodate up to four artists, and we are equipped with four independent studio-rooms, Wireless Internet connection, shared full equipped kitchen & bathroom, and our full equipped gallery for events & exhibitions.
Materials and equipment: reference material/library, projector & flat monitor (only for events), stationery equipment (craft knives, self-healing cutting mat, staplers, rulers, felt tip pens etc.), jigsaw, drill & basic tool set, extension cables, plastic buckets and utensils, glue gun, easels...
