Fees and Funding

At this moment, we do not have funding for the program, although we hope to in the future. The artist must provide their own funding. Programs such as Culture Moves Europe and ACA(For Spanish Residents or visitors) provide support for artist mobility and the selected artist may apply for these programs. We aim to make the selection so that the artist(s) have time to apply for this funding. Special funding is available for Eastern Europeans and Ukraine.

Monthly fee €120. If accommodation is needed, there is on-site living that can be rented at a subsidized cost, but is based on availability. We can also provide links and suggestions for rooms in the city. Special funding and mobility programs funded by the EU are available for artists from Ukraine. 


The artist must have a clear concept with a plan of finishing within the time frame. This can be a project that is already in progress, but the idea is to present the finished work in the form of a live or virtual performance, release, or presentation relevant to the work. The final work does not need to be presented in the lab, it can be at a festival or other venue of the artist’s choosing.
