Hektor Artist and activists in residence

ektor is a safe space for artists, activists, guests and friends. We want to use our estate to create a better and more creative world, from one of the world’s most inspiring islands: Lanzarote.

Read more about our residencies below or register immediately.

You can now apply for July and the fall of 2024.

For who?

We offer working space both for artists and activists.

We open our doors to any art form and type of activism, as long as you endorse our values: planet-driven, diverse, progressive and open.

What do we offer?

In July and fall we offer one of our suites for residencies.

Our suites (30 – 40m2) have a kitchenette, one or two rooms, en-suite bathroom and a double bed, including bed sheets, towels, toiletry and bi-weekly cleaning.

There is a shared atelier workspace (app. 16 m2) that is reserved for artists / activists from 10.00 to 18.00 which has an extra kitchen.

Our rates:

  • € 1.250 for a stay of one month (artist/activist)
  • € 22 per night for an extra guest (max. 2 people per suite). Please note we suggest to limit the stay of extra guests to max. 50% of your total stay, unless you are both working on the same project or both register for separate projects.

This rates are for calendar months. We ask artists to plan their residency between the 1st and last day of the calendar month. No discounts will be given for residencies shorter than a calendar month. Of course, you can also come for two months.

Artistic work as a contribution is possible (see expectations). All prices are excluding applicable taxes.

Facilities & food

Our suites are situated in the main house of Hektor and have one or two rooms, a dining area, kitchenette and en-suite bathroom. There is WiFi. They are being renovated in 2022/2023 and are decorated with our arts, design & crafts collection.

Hektor also offers a shared garden with pool, relaxing spots and plenty of opportunities to work in the open air. There is also a picking garden (free to harvest whatever is ripe) and 12.000m2 of farmlands.

The atelier is reserved for our artists between 10.00 & 18.00 and has an extra kitchen, which you can use. Specialized materials (like a baking oven, recording, …) are not standard provided but can be discussed (e.g. in collaboration with one of the many craftspeople on the island). We are happy to help.

Hektor has exhibition and presenting / performance possibilities. We will discuss this during the selection phase.

We offer a weekly meal for our artists (at least one per stay) and can provide breakfast and have an honesty bar.

Selection procedure

Our selection procedure starts with a simple registration. We ask for 15 working days to evaluate your application. Please note that applications with a clear link to the island, our values, the community and/or the Hektor eco-system will be prioritized.

A video call will be planned if your application is accepted, to get to know each other and to touch ground upon mutual expectations. If we decide to invite you to this call, we will ask for a registration fee of 25,-. This fee will be:

  • deducted from your stay, if we decide to go forward
  • refunded if we (Hektor) decide not to go forward with the residency
  • considered an administrational fee if you decide not to go forward with the residency

If we all feel like continuing with the residency, a letter of agreement will be send to you. Your residency will be secured after you have a send us a signed copy and paid a 50% deposit (with a maximum of € 600 per suite).
