El Centre d’Art i Natura de Farrera
The Centre's living quarters are simple and comfortable, with double and single rooms with shared kitchens and bathrooms. The studios enjoy plenty of sundlight, as well as a supply of water and electricity. They are also suitable for holding meetings, seminars and courses (for 10/12 people). Dinner every night is the only communal obligation for residents.
Apart from its residential service, the Centre for Art and Nature (CAN) organises grants and exchanges, courses and seminars, exhibitions of works from its art collection, publications and original editions, as well as performances and presentations.
