Unlike artists in residence, the projects in residence in Hangar are collective projects that, in addition to caring the objectives themselves, are capable of generating a conceptual and practical symbiosis with the center and its users. Its scope of work has to do with theoretical or practical research, and the experimentation and development of open and free access tools that facilitate creative, technological or non-technological processes.

Among its objectives there must be a specific attention to the community itself and to the distribution of the knowledge that is generated, being in this way projects that generate possibilities for the others. But the fundamental value of its presence in Hangar and its relationship with it, is its return in relation to the community surrounding the center. They must, therefore, have the will to service and reinforce the artistic and grassroots community, working with realistic and ethically acceptable dynamics from a cultural, social and economic point of view.

In short, the concept of community and of that common one is one of the axes on which the resident projects revolve, therefore, they have to be able to find echo between the community or to generate a new one. The other axis is the generation and transfer of knowledge, facilitating the access of artists and other users to the same generating learning communities.
