Spaces and resident artists

The Lower Level

The lower level comprises 8 spaces of 30 m2. The rental of these areas includes the use of a communal space for activities, and of a rear patio area for open air sculptural work. Likewise, a communal space has also been created in the interior where artists can use tools related to sculpture. One of the studio spaces of the lower level serves as a workshop for exchanges with other creation centres.

The Upper Level

Open calls

Criteria for selection of artists

La Escocesa is a space with a multidisciplinary artistic history. Its workshops have hosted the performing arts, visual arts, circus, and more. At present, although various artistic disciplines co-exist in the same space, La Escocesa tends to focus more and more on the visual arts, on one hand because of the adaptation of the spaces, and on the other, the ecology of the city.

What is La Escocesa?

La Escocesa is a self-managed artistic production centre that focuses on the visual arts with the public in mind. It aims to offer resident creators and collectives a series of different spaces at affordable prices (work spaces, a multipurpose hall, material for production, promotion and international exchange) to foster their professional development and assist them in their artistic career.

La Escocesa is run by L’Associació d’Idees.
