Call for Artists now open!
Riba Rocks is very excited to announce this year’s Call for Artists is NOW OPEN! 2019 will see the fourth annual Riu d’Art International Artist Residency in collaboration with the Youth Councillor of the Ajuntament of Riba-roja d’Ebre.
Previous years have seen international artists from Singapore, Austria, Chile, United States, Finland, Cyprus and the UK come to live and work within the rural village of Riba-roja d’Ebre for two weeks during the summer. National and local artists have also been successful in the application process, resulting in a wonderful integral collaboration between global practitioners.
The local community welcomes artists to Riba-roja by offering facades of their houses or plots of urban land as canvases for painted murals, steel sculptures, mixed media installation, illustration, graffiti and much more.
The Riu d’Art map is available in all local bars and restaurants, offering a guide to the open air gallery locations.
