I Want it, What is it?

So what is Hector?

“A safe space for artists, activists, guest and friends”, says the website. It’s also a beautiful farm in the eery landscape of Lanzarote, with suites complete with kitchenette, en-suite bathrooms, a shared garden with pool, a picking garden and 12.000m2 of farm land.

Bed sheets, towels, toiletry and bi-weekly cleaning is included, so is a weekly dinner. Optional breakfast packages on weekdays as well as a breakfast buffet on the weekend can be booked additionally.

And then there’s the atelier, reserved for the artists in residency.

Artists and Activists in Residency

In 2023, Hektor offers two suites and working space for residencies. Exhibition space can be offered as well.

Hektor is searching for artists and activists for the residency and will open its doors to any art form and type of activism — as long as it endorses the founder’s values: Planet-driven, diverse, progressive and open.

Sounds too good to be true? Head over to the Hektor website to learn more and to hand in your application.
