Welcome to Faberllull

Faberllull is a network of residences of arts, sciences and humanities located in the cites of Olot (Catalonia) and La Massana (Andorra) managed by the Institut Ramon Llull in collaboration with Olot's town council and the Governement of Andorra.

It is a place for professionals from the Arts, Sciences or Humanities fields (writers, translators, artists of diverse disciplines, scholars and scientists and so on) come to work on their personal projects for a time. That is why Faberllull offers:

On the one hand, thematic residences programmed throughout year, in which professionals from the Arts, Sciences or Humanities fields can come to work and share experiences with other residents for a few days. During their stay, the residents will collaborate in different kinds of activities addressed to students, professionals or general public. The activities will be carried out in accordance with a project, taking into account previous demands and necessities. We provide a space for stay, to work and exchange. We are very respectful of each resident’s time and project process. Even so, it is not a place of retreat where to isolate oneself from others; we want residents to be able to learn from each other and to have exchanges during return activities as well. The profile of residents that we are looking for is of people who need a space and time for productive work, people who want to share their project with other residents and create a friendly and supportive community.

On the other hand, individual residencies that all professionals from the Arts, Sciences or Humanities fields can apply for coming to work on their professional projects for a few days.

People who is interested in some of these residencies can read more about this on Candidates.
