Ras de Terra is an artistic residency located in La Vera, Extremadura. The project responds to the human necessity to promote and enhance a fluid dialogue between the rural and the urban world.
Our aim is to create a 360 experience for our artistic residents and provide them the opportunity to: have a personal space to work and investigate, adapt to its hosts customs, appreciate local gastronomy, share with locals and meet new artist friends.
It’s a sustainable project that is environmentally smart. With its own solar energy, we seek to create a positive environmental impact by preserving the soil and its nutrients, the architecture surrounding it and the local customs. Ras de Terra has as pillars: education, awareness, investigation and innovation. These pillars foster: inclusion, nature regeneration, dynamization and the local economic development in La Vera.
Ras de Terra became official partner of the New European Bauhaus as both initiatives share at its core the search for new sustainable economic approaches in rural spaces with its focus in the preservation of culture.
