  • Description

    Description

    We are a creative couple from London, well technically one Austrian and one British, and are working on our dream of creating a not-for-profit artistic centre here. One of us is a furniture designer and the other a playwright and director. We speak English, German, Hebrew and Spanish, and a little bit of all sorts of other languages, as we've travelled extensively.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are in the process of modernising a 200 year old farm building as well as creating organic gardens. So anyone interested could learn/teach other liked minded people. My background is in furniture design and my partner a playwright and director, we are always happy to share anything to do with art or design, as well as our love for cooking.

    Hello, we recently moved to an old Cortijo near Ubeda in Jaen, Andalucia, and have lots of space for people to come and stay with us.
    We are a creative couple from London, well technically one Austrian and one British, and are working on our dream of creating a not-for-profit artistic centre here. One of us is a furniture designer and the other a playwright and director. We speak English, German, Hebrew and Spanish, and a little bit of all sorts of other languages, as we've travelled extensively.

    We run a vegetarian/vegan household, have two puppies and one cat and are looking for open minded creative people to come and stay with us.
    As we only just moved here and with the lockdown we couldn’t really explore much, but Ubeda (our nearest town - 10min by car) is a Unesco world heritage site and the whole area offers loads of cultural activities, as well as plenty of options to explore nature in the two national parks nearby. We're also pretty close to Granada and the coast.

    We can offer you a private room, delicious meals, great company as well as loads of space to do things. We are keen to hear from people who are into up-cycling, reusing materials and generally up for some DIY, painting and decorating but also keen to explore arts and crafts of the area. Anyone who is interested in gardening and maybe to teach Spanish, help us train our puppies, web-design, marketing, grant application or generally has a can-do attitude and help us is more than welcome. Basically - if you have a skill you think might be useful to us - let us know - we're open to suggestions.

    We are also looking for people to get involved in our arts centre.
    We are still very far away from it, but in the future we want offer artist residencies, creative retreats and events, focusing on literature, drama, design, performance, food, craft, cross-discipline exploration (between the creative and non-creative fields) and really, anything and everything. If you believe in what we’re doing and feel you have skills that can help us make it happen, please get in touch.
