Faber, the Arts, Sciences and Humanities Residency of Catalonia in Olot is a place for writers, translators, artists of diverse disciplines, scholars and scientists to stay together and to work on their personal projects for a time in the context of a thematic stay.
Faber organizes several thematic stays during the year. Each one is made up by a few professionals who come to work on their professional projects related to the subject of the period. People interested in some thematic stay have to apply for this and undergo a selection process.
During their stay, the residents will collaborate in different kinds of activities addressed to students, professionals and general public. The activities will be carried out in accordance with a project, taking into account previous demands and necessities.
The Residency is a contemporary space which acts out of the interests of the hosting society. It collects ideas, opinion trends and worries of contemporary world and European cultures. The Residency’s permanence of being up-to-date is reinforced by the residents who are going to stay there. The Residency will participate in the maintenance of communication lines towards Catalonia and towards the world, essential for today’s society, and will be a connecting link between Olot and other towns, between Catalonia and other countries.
