Xeracion is a non-profit organization composed by Galician young people sharing common ideas and visions. We work spreading a new youth culture: more European, tolerant and with equal opportunities. To reach that objectives we organize regular workshops, presentations, cultural trips and language exchanges.
CASA CREATIVA is our habitat for creative minds. It is a program powered by Deputacion de Coruña and Xeracion.
The aim of the space is to bring international artists from different cultural areas to Ferrol and give them the space to create their personal projects. It is about art and community building. The aim is to activate the local cultural life and social networking. The international habitants can stay here from 2 weeks to 2 months. He/She will have opportunity to live in shared flat with international volunteers and free working and exhibition space in the co-habitat. In the end of /during the program an exhibition/workshop/presentation will be formed including artist talk - an open discussion with the author to introduce the international resident to local community and open up his/her creation. Come and discover the wild Galicia and share your artwork!
