Aims of the project

Enlave Land Art Residency 2018 will take place at Penyagolosa’s Natural Park in June/July 2018. This second edition follows the first one’s philosophy, with Land Art as core idea and the artistic residency’s format. However, and with the aim of creates a link with the territory, we have designed COMBOIART and NATURE’s project, which includes activities like talks, workshops, cinema and guided tours to the residency’s projects.

The Artistic Residency in Vistabella del Maestrat is a project with international impact. Enclave collaborates with local inhabitants to provide a real and material benefit to the territory of Penyagolosa’s Natural Park. The goal is to increase the area’s resources and contribute to spread the idea, in a sustainable and respectful way, of thinking about nature and landscape as heritage.

Currently, ENCLAVE LAND ART has the support of local entities which believe in the project.
