Villa Maecenas operates a residency program that runs from April to July and September to April each year in Ibiza, Spain.
Located in amidst the forests and fields of wild flowers of northern Ibiza, but only a few minutes away from quaint white washed villages and farm houses scattered around the island.
The Maecenas foundation aims to provide visiting artists a tranquil space, comfortable accommodation and working area. Some programs will offer free stay and full board, whereas others will only offer discounted rates.
Residents are invited to be our guests at the charming 400 years old finca, designed by Rolf Blaskstad which sits amongst 4 hectares of wild flowers, forests and mountains. A truly authentic Ibizan experience.
Residencies provide a time of reflection, research, presentation, production and immersion into a new culture. They often allow an individual to explore their practice within another community; meeting new people, using new materials, experiencing life in a new location and potentially integrating elements of that experience into their art. Art residencies emphasises the importance of meaningful and multi-layered cultural exchange and immersion into another culture.
A program of regular talks, workshops and other events are run by the foundation in collaboration with the residents to promote interaction and exchange of ideas both among the residents and with the wider community.
Further facilities include free wifi throughout the villa, salt-water swimming pool, an organic herb garden and a screening/projection room. Two delicious, healthy meals a day will be provided to the residents, laid by our in-house chef.
