  • Descrição



    We are a family of three (Davoud, Tatiana and baby Mey) working on converting an abandoned village located in Galicia, Spain into a space for artistic practices, creativity, and critical learning. At this stage this is a family project.

    Our village is our little paradise with incredible mountain views located on a ridge overlooking the Miño river in a region called Ribeira Sacra. We are surrounded by lush oak and chestnut forests ideal for trekking. Our region produces one of the best wines in Spain and we help them in this process of heroic viticulture. We consume local food and follow the principles of sustainability.

    We work because we love to create, grow, and share. We work because we believe that through working, thinking, creating art, and contemplating philosophically, we can make this world a better place.

    And we look forward to having you on board!
