Can Serrat is part of the Artists at Risk (AR) hosting institutions networks.
Can Serrat is an international artists and writers community focusing on the creative process. The residency is located in El Bruc (45 minutes from Barcelona) a semi-rural context, many of the projects in the residency are related in very diverse ways to ecofeminism, collective creation, individual process within a community context, ruralism, translation, and migration.
The residency program supports writing and artistic production in process, offering time, space, individual and collective support, and a professional network since 1989. Monthly activities are organized to activate the investigation of the projects in production and allow connections with the surroundings and locals: conversations, a book club reading, visits to relevant spaces, a dinner open to the local community (summer time only), studio visit and project presentations (racons), to name a few. The organized activities reflect an interest in being present to process, research, question, doubt, understand, curiosity, and debate.
