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.
In general terms, the main objectives of La Escocesa are: the allocation of spaces at affordable prices to artists who need it, and the self-management of the space. As specific objectives of the next period of management of La Escocesa, the Associació proposes to:
- Reach agreements with galleries and other exhibition centres to encourage the dissemination and promotion of the work of the resident artists.
- Reach agreements with other production centres and associations related to the obtainment and use of material by the resident artists of La Escocesa.
- Provide information on different calls, fellowships and grants for artists and art collectives.
- Promote exchange programs with other national and international spaces.
In addition, all initiatives and proposals beyond the output generated by artists resident in La Escocesa will be promoted and supported by the Associació.
