Frequently asked questions for residents

Faber is a service institution. Residents will be asked to do activities with their project work or some fields of knowledge we believe may be of interest. These activities can be done anywhere in Catalonia. Residents should have some flexibility to adapt to various public activities. The activities will be not paid in any case.

In Catalan, Spanish, English or French.

As it is indicated in the instructions that you will be given if you are selected, you will arrive at the Olot bus station. It is 15 minutes away from the hotel Riu Fluvià. There will be a person waiting for you at the station. Unfortunately, we can’t pick you up at the airport.

You do not have to pay anything to stay in Faber if you are invited. The only things that the Residency does not cover during your stay are your travel expenses to get to Olot, your obligatory medical insurance and your lunch. However, there is a kitchen at your disposal.

Faber can provide you with vegetarian food. Getting a completely vegan menu is not always possible. We do not provide kosher food. However, there is a kitchen at your disposal.

It depends. The Residency is a work place and not a base camp. We understand that there may be some work trips or some trips to reference institutions, however, generally, the stay has to be made entirely at Faber. We also understand that we are in a touristic area that offers lots of opportunities. If you wish, we can send you links regarding what you can do before or after you stay in the Residency.

No, the use of the facilities of the Residency is for residents only, unless there is a previous permission.

There are no working hours, residents organise their days according to their own convenience. The only limitation is the respect to the rest-time of other residents and hotel guests.

Yes, of course. There are some nooks around the hotel where you can read, study or write. There are also libraries and other institutions that Faber’s residents can use.

Residents coming from the EU can use the medical services in Catalonia. However, it is preferable to get a private health insurance. For non-EU citizens, a private health insurance is obligatory. Residents have to send the copy of their insurance to the Residency staff.

Frequently asked questions for non-residents

Faber is open to all professional artists, managers who are interested in a resident or in activities that are promoted. However, the acceptance will depend on the adequacy of the proposal, the availability of the residents and the agenda of the residence.

Get in touch with us via the web. We will evaluate your request.

Detail Note: If you wish to use an absolute template path (for example, template="/mypath/index.cfm") with CFINCLUDE, you must create a mapping for the path using the ColdFusion Administrator. Or, you can use per-application settings to specify mappings specific to this application by specifying a mappings struct to THIS.mappings in Application.cfc. <br> Using relative paths (for example, template="index.cfm" or template="../index.cfm") does not require the creation of any special mappings. It is therefore recommended that you use relative paths with CFINCLUDE whenever possible.
