Due to lack of financial support, Jiwar has very limited funding potential.
However, we help the candidates with all that they may need for their grant bids in their own countries.

Prices range from 28€/day to 60€, depending on the studio and the duration of residency. For details please contact us to The national artists (all artists from all nationalities who live and work in Catalonia or Spain) will have a 10% of discount.

We don’t accept couples (only artistic teams).  The artists are allowed to receive visits for no more than a week. This extra stay will be charged with a supplement.

Fully fitted out kitchen.

Jiwar policy is to not supply meals because of the rich and cheap gastronomic options in Gracia and Barcelona (a typical midday menu costs between 7€ and 12€ and includes 2 main courses, a desert and a drink). Also there are two big public markets nearby and numerous shops and supermarkets. Jiwar kitchen is nicely and fully fitted, enjoyable to use.
