About

CeRCCa, the Centre for Research and Creativity Casamarlès, is a non-profit organization that has been developing research and artistic projects since 2009.

CeRCCa is based in an old house in Llorenç del Penedès, a 2000 inhabitant village located in the Penedès region of Catalonia, a region known for its wine and olive oil not far from Barcelona. Llorenç can be considered an average village with no much charm integrated in contemporary processes of urban and social transformation. Although it maintains its sense of community through a strong presence of cultural organizations, this same community is being challenged by urban expansion, industrial development and social diversification making of the village and example of the new dialogues and confrontations that have emerged through the processes that characterize Globalization.

CeRCCa works with a double strategy. On one hand it provides living and working space for artists and researchers through the Artist in Residency Program. On the other CeRCCa develops research and curatorial projects that have as a common denominator the critical reflection on the phenomenon of cultural mobility while at the same time implements different initiatives that reflect, theoretically and practically, about Artist in Residencies as a creative model.
