La Célula – Residencia de Arte Útil

La Célula is a project to activate the house as a sustainable residence for artists and social entrepreneurs ( It is based on the concept “Useful Art” (, basically social art or art with a cause. All forms of artistic expression are welcome.

We are an ongoing project aimed at creating a positive impact in our world, living more sustainably, generating a feeling of community and belonging and integrating art into everyday life. Our values are sharing, co-creating, inclusion, adaptability, frugality and of course having fun!
