Spots available for ten (10) Residents. Open to all nationalities.

ROOSTERGNN Global News Network ( is accepting applications for its first open call for the ROOSTERGNN ARTIST RESIDENCY in Madrid, Spain, which will accept ten (10) Residents in 2018.

Madrid, Spain: a Capital for Creatives.

It is no wonder that Madrid is breaking tourist records year after year. The most visited city in Spain, Madrid received more than 8.8 million tourists in 2015, writes El Pais. The city’s rich culture, including its Golden Art Triangle, -framed by the Prado Museum, the Thyssen Museum, the Reina Sofia Museum and now the Caixa Forum,- is famous worldwide. Alternative galleries showcasing international independent artists are popping up all over the city as well. From Malasaña to the Barrio de las Letras, Madrid’s diverse neighborhoods are steeped in history, ideal for reflective strolls, both day and night. In recent years, Madrid has moreover become named “capital of fashion” (“capital de la moda“), perfect for those interested in investigating clothes as a socio-cultural reflector that transcends class and provenance. So, too, is the city home of the Spanish language, and one can retrace the footsteps of numerous legendary writers, from the Quijote to Hemingway, in and around Madrid. The city’s proximity to other Spanish towns and cities make for active adventures, be it a day-trip to Toledo or a weekend getaway to Barcelona. On a weekend in Madrid, on the other hand, you can enjoy the Retiro Park or even a typical Real Madrid soccer match – and let’s not forget the delicious food and tapas. There’s something in Madrid for all tastes!

Project Scope.

Every Resident works on a self-directed creative project throughout his or her Residency. Candidates should detail their project proposal in the application form. It is not required that residents finish an entire project during their stay at the Madrid Residency; you can work on a project you have started elsewhere, or work on a project in a brainstorming format and continue to work on it after the program.

Language. The Residency can be carried out in English OR Spanish. It is not necessary to speak Spanish in order to complete the Residency. Our Orientation Coordinator is bilingual (English and Spanish), so that Residents can communicate in English or Spanish with him or her.
