Try to imagine a space for artistic-spiritual retreat, where artists and hobbyists can spend some days developing their creativity in any focus area: write a book, carry out a dance workshop, a music program, paint, sculpt or simply meditate.

The pace of urban life, information overload, visual and noise pollution, invasive advertising and other external factors constantly overstimulate our senses altering and distorting our perception of reality. Nowadays it is difficult to find an evocative space for inspiration, which is not only an aesthetically pleasing site, but also psychologically and emotionally neutral, where it is possible to concentrate, clear the mind, the consciousness and the artistic sensibilities. Therefore, there is a need for spaces that promote concentration, artistic inspiration and meditation.

OPENGAP organizes the ninth edition of this open ideas competition seeking for innovative, cutting-edge, contemporary, proposals regarding a new concept for artistic inspiration spaces.

Participants are invited to design a place focused on the rental of spaces that motivate creativity and concentration, allowing users to focus, inspire and develop their artistic ideas.

Each participant or team will define the location of their project, however, the proposal must justify the choice of the location.
