Through its International Exchange Programme, Hangar lays out procedures for collaborating with art centres all over the world, both in terms of residency exchanges and in its willingness to participate in joint research and creative experimentation projects.
The programme seeks to promote artists’ mobility so that they may have the opportunity to develop their work in research, creation and production areas in specialized production centres. Contact and interaction in a different setting favours the artistic working process.
Hangar does not currently award grants to overseas artists travelling to Barcelona. All artists, of any nationality, may apply to work in one of Hangar’s studios. Travel expenses and accommodation in Barcelona, as well as the cost of studio rental must be met by the artist.
The residencies are classified into two different categories
1. Exchange grant residencies,
2. Residencies abroad,
Hangar’s grant programme is open to Spanish artists or artists residing in Spain who would like to travel to centres abroad.
