For our first call-out, we are looking for artists, craftspeople, thinkers and creatives from all different fields to explore the theme: RE:imagine – anything to do with recycling, repurposing, redoing, restarting, etc.
We are purposefully keeping the theme as broad as possible, and encourage you to think as tangentially as possible. We are not looking for the same ol’ works, but instead want to encourage all our visiting creatives to challenge themselves into doing new things and exploring new forms.
We are particularly interested in people who wish to work with found objects and repurpose them, as we have a lot of objects in our junk yard, but we are open to all forms of creations: visual, performative, audible, theoretical, written, etc.
The application is free of charge and should be completed in English.

Isla de Crear is a creative centre, combining a range of different disciplines, to explore creating and crafting in a new method, away from commercial constraints or industry guidelines, based on the principles of the Fantasism manifesto. We are open to people of all ages and backgrounds, and only ask that you have a keen interest in pro-actively seeking the strange and unique connections, through interdisciplinary and international collaboration.
The centre is located in Úbeda, in the Jaén region of Andalusia, the sunny south of Spain, where the sun is out 300 days of the year, in the middle of the Sea of Olives with no neighbours for miles, but we are by a main road (so it can get quite noisy sometimes), just outside Úbeda, a UNESCO world heritage site and home to a buzzing community of artisan craftspeople and a lot of cultural events, which we are keen for our creatives to connect with.
