‘The actual order of things is precisely what popular tactics turn to their own ends, without any illusion that it will change any time soon. Into the institution to be served are thus insinuated styles of social change, technical invention, and moral resistance. That is, an economiy of the gift, an aesthetics of tricks and an ethics of tenacity’
‘The Practice of Everyday Life’ (1988, p.130)
Michael de Certeau
Characteristics of the Program:
- Each year CeRCCa organizes 3 to 4 AIR Programs that last for approximately 2 months each. For each residency 3 to 4 artists are selected. CeRCCa offers individual bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 40 sqm shared studios, a library as well as a big living-room/kitchen area and a patio.
- In order to facilitate the mutual knowledge from the different creative perspectives of the artists and their projects, during the first week of the residency, CeRCCa organizes work presentations by the artists and the organizers of the program.
- Depending on the necessities of each artist, the organizers bridge the gap between the artists, researchers and the different associations of the village.
- CeRCCa also facilitates a series of cultural visits to regional and national organizations as well as to different artistic production centers of Catalonia. These activities can be accompanied by guided tours and informal meetings with different cultural agents.
- At the end of each residency, CeRCCa organizes a public presentation of the work that the artists and researchers have developed. These public presentations can take the format of open studios or exhibition at the local Cultural Centre or at CeRCCa premises. Depending on the circumstances an exhibition can also take place in a gallery or cultural space of the region or in Barcelona.
- At the end of each residency and with the agreement of the resident artists and researchers, CeRCCa proposes a short video interview with each resident aiming to document his/her experience at CeRCCa.
The residency periods for 2013 are:
10th March – 27th April 2013
10th May – 27th June 2013
10th July - 27th August 2013

CeRCCa is an artist run initiative and does not have direct institutional support. We are fully aware that most of the time artists do not have their own means to pay for a residency. That is way in our web you will find some on line tools and a list of organizations that can be of your interest if you are intending to apply for funding. Other sources of funding could be your country’s Ministry of Culture or Arts Council or the embassy of your country in Spain. We can also provide you with acceptance letter to our Program and any other document to facilitate or support your funding application.

Benvolguts amics i amigues,
El CeRCCa – Centre de Recerca i Creació Casamarlès de Llorenç del Penedès, ha organitzat en motiu de la Festa Major local la reobertura de Cal Marçal, un antic cafè i sala sociocultural de principis del segle XX, amb un gran valor històric i simbòlic. Enguany, i gràcies a l’esforç de la família Fontanals i la iniciativa del CeRCCa, Cal Marçal torna a obrir les seves portes a Llorenç del Penedès, i ho farà el diumenge 12 d’agost a les 8 del vespre a Cal Marçal, C/Àngel Guimerà, N 4, Llorenç del Penedes.
En els seus orígens Cal Marçal va ser un espai que va transgredir les normes establertes i va introduir al poble noves formes artístiques i d’entreteniment tals com el ball rodó i el cinema. Posteriorment també va funcionar com a escola, fàbrica de joguets i seu provisional de La Cumprativa i finalment com a santuari d’ocells exòtics i magatzem. Cal Marçal ha estat tancat al públic des de fa més de 30 anys. La naturalesa innovadora de Cal Marçal s’ha recuperat en ocasió de la seva reobertura. En aquesta especial ocasió, es presentarà un treball documental desenvolupat per Lourdes Guillén i Noemi Navarro i tres instal.lacions inspirades en la historia de Cal Marçal de Julie Laurin, Oreen Cohen i Cole Sternberg, artistes residents al CeRCCa.
Us hi esperem a tots!
CeRCCa – Center for Research and Creativity Casamarles (www.cercca.com) has organized the reopening of Cal Marçal, an old cinema and ballroom that opened its doors in the beginning of the XXth century. The building has a huge historical and symbolic value. Thanks to the efforts of Fontanals Family and CeRCCa, Cal Marçal open its doors on Sunday the 12th August at 8 pm coinciding with the main parties of the village, Llorenç del Penedes.
In its origins, Cal Marçal was a space that challenged the traditions of that time and introduced to the village new artistic formats like the cinema and modern dance. Cal Marçal was closed during the Franco dictatorship and then functioned as a school, a toys fabric and finally an exotic birds sanctuary and storage place. Cal Marçal has been closed to the public for 30 years. The innovative nature of Cal Marçal has been recuperated for its reopening. For this special occasion. The opening will be accompanied by a historical documentation exhibition with photographs, objects and a Documentary created by Lourdes Guillén and Noemi Navarro as well as by the three site specific installations developed by Julie Laurin, Oreen Cohen and Cole Sternberg, residents artists at CeRCCa.
You are all invited!
