Faberllull Olot is a truly remarkable creative community and one-of-a-kind residency. It provides artists the opportunity to both experience the beautiful town of Olot (and the surrounding region) and dig deep into their artistic pursuits in the peaceful solace of the Riu Fluvia hotel. The exchange activities were rewarding and thought-provoking, and Faberllull allows artists to connect and exchange knowledge with award-winning, revered artists from around the world over a nightly dinner.
