Co-net_ and Imaginaria Art Residency

Co-net_ in partnership with Imaginaria Photography Art Festival and in collaboration with University Jaume I, Consorcio de Museos of Comunidad Valenciana and the UAL Post-Grad Community at UAL introduce the second edition of their art residency with a focus on still and/or moving image.

Co-net_ is a cultural and artistic platform hosting seminars, workshops, lectures and residencies for international art lovers in the Valencia area in Spain. Co-net’s mission is to create a dynamic and collaborative community by bringing together artists amongst them and linking them up with international cultural organizations and institutions.

Imaginaria Photography Art Festival is based in the city of Castellon. The goal of Imaginaria is the dissemination of culture and photography in particular, as well as helping to spread the work of artists at the local level.

In 2019, the festival will take place from the ​3 May – 9 June​. Imaginaria festival has been active in the art scene for the past 16 years. Managed by the University Jaume I Social and cultural activities services and the Photography Aula, has taken on board an increasing number of institutions, collectives, creatives and artists which have all collaborated to the success of the University Jaume I and its third parties. Artists such as Chema Madoz, Ouka Leele, Javier Compano, Pilar Pequeño, Luis Baylon, Juan Manuel Díaz Burgos, Cristóbal Hara, Tuca Vieria have been exhibited at the Imaginaria festival.

The festival is thriving to encourage individual cultural initiatives to further the conversation about the contemporary art landscape. Imaginaria is a cultural umbrella for activities such as Sonda visual in Vila-real, el Dipcasphoto in Castellon, FotoMayo in Segorbe, Canet Crea, IKONIK Project, and Co-net_.

Co-net_ welcomes applications from practicing artists focussing on still and/or moving images. This focus should be interpreted in its broadest sense and we encourage applicants to push their interpretation of the theme to new extents. The proposal should highlight the applicant’s interest in the local province of Castellón and why the residency would be beneficial for their artistic career.
