Among the activities of the Fundación Rac the artist-in-residence program stands out. It is aimed as a way to bring Spanish and international artists into the cultural milieu in Galicia. In this way, Fundación Rac seeks to function as a pole of attraction for artists interested in temporarily moving their creative process to Galicia and developing site-specific work. This should also promote the approach between artists and the cultural, educational and artistic institutions in Galicia.
Every year the Board of Trustees of the Fundación Rac selects an artist to be invited to the artist-in-residence program. The length and character of their stay in Pontevedra depends on the kind of project that each artist proposes. The program includes, besides travel and living expenses, patronage of the production of the works and a solo show at the exhibition space of Fundación Rac in the old quarter of Pontevedra as well as a publication documenting the experience.
