CACiS opens the international call for artists, creators and scientists in residence during the year 2020, to carry out a project of art, ecology and sustainability with the intention of promoting collaborations between artists and scientists. The joint or individual creation should be guided by climate change, as inspiration, reflection and invitation to action. The centre is in a rural environment near the Spanish Pyrenees.

Cacis El Forn de la calç welcomes projects related to education, science and art in the natural environment, proposals that use art as a language, for its social function of awareness, and promote critical thinking based on a more global analysis of our relationship with the environment, incorporating it at any stage of learning.

This year 2020 the aim of the call for residency is to produce innovative and critical projects that re-imagine the way in which the climate crisis is experienced in rural environments and small communities, focusing their work in Bages (central Catalonia) as a case study or as a possible reference, projects that propose strategies for raising awareness of a reality that significantly affects rural areas.

The selected artists and scientists will carry out a residency in CACiS and on the territory of the region of Moianès. The result is a work of art-science that will be presented in CACiS and the village selected for study during the year 2020.

The selected projects must be in line with the following lines of work:
- Art and natural landscape. Bioclimatic architecture. Ecology and sustainability.
- Stimulation of the observation and analysis of the environment for its conservation and improvement.
- Creations that take us deeper into the causes of Climate Change. Carbon footprint. Ecological footprint.
- Ecofeminism
- Resilience recovering in natural balance.
