  • Description

    Description

    We are a Spanish-German couple who have created an independent art and culture centre near Tortosa, right by some natural parks: Delta del Ebre, Ports de Beseit, Terra Alta... We are about 200 km south of Barcelona.

    We live and work here, and also invite other artists to teach or to show their work. Our open air gallery offers a place for exhibitions and other cultural events.

    We are an older couple with lots of ideas for the future of our Cultural Center but we do not have the manpower to do this all alone, that is why we need volunteers who can help us with our projects and who are creative and enthusiastic.

    We also need help with the house: things to be fixed, light cooking and cleaning, gardening and feeding the animals. Some handicraft skills would be very useful.
    We have a dog, some chickens and a rooster, cats, and a growing family of peacocks.

    We have some projects going on. Some are short term, some require more time.
    Some of the practical projects are repair and maintenance of the building and surroundings.

    We have a special long term project where we want to extend our open air gallery and build an amphitheater.
    For this we need people experienced in building stone walls. This means some heavy lifting and working with the necessary machines.
