The dream

Dear friends, through this Verkami campaign, we are calling for collective help to finish the refurbishment and complete the infrastructure of the artists' residence.

Although we have carried out significant rehabilitation work on the building, in line with criteria of sustainability, we are still short of some resources to finish the communal and work spaces for the future artists in residence.

What will your contribution be used for?

The rehabilitation project of CA LA ROSA has been fully assumed by those responsible for it. At this point, the help we need to complete the communal areas of the residence is for:

  1. Completing the graphic editing workshop with the acquisition of a press, furniture, and lighting.

  2. Providing the Digital Laboratory with specialized digital art equipment.

  3. Furnishing the guest rooms with furniture and lighting.

  4. Finishing the refurbishment of the residents’ kitchen and dining room.

In the autumn of 2024 we plan to welcome our first resident artists.

Collaborate with your contribution and help us get our artists’ residence up and running!
