CRIA (Center of Residencies and Artistic Investigation) is a space formed for research, training and dissemination of art. This space hosts regular drawing and painting classes, exhibitions in the in-house gallery (Petanca Gallery) and provides residencies for International artists for short periods (3-5 months) to develop projects. CRIA contains within its infrastructure apartments with all amenities, a workshop of more than 100 square meters and is also equipped with a gallery for the exhibition of art work. CRIA participates actively in the monthly Ensenada Art Walk.
CRIA offers support to artists to develop art projects, with technical advice and studio space. CRIA has agreements with various state arts programs where residents can include their proposals and be part of these projects. The call to be a resident at CRIA is open all year.
CRIA provides space for residents, both residence as production, in addition to materials required for their research, as well as direct participation agreements.
