Welcome to the page 2017 Faber Wikiproject, a project that aims to experiment with the processes of creation following wiki philosophy and sharing knowledge freely and openly with other members of the house.


Faber, the Arts, Sciences and Humanities Residency of Catalonia in Olot is a place for writers, translators, artists of diverse disciplines, scholars and scientists to stay together and to work on their personal projects.

During their stay, the residents will collaborate in different kinds of activities addressed to students, professionals and general public. The activities will be carried out in accordance with a project, taking into account previous demands and necessities.

The Residency is a contemporary space which acts out of the interests of the hosting society. It collects ideas, opinion trends and worries of contemporary world and European cultures. The Residency’s permanence of being up-to-date is reinforced by the residents who are going to stay there. The Residency will participate in the maintenance of communication lines towards Catalonia and towards the world, essential for today’s society, and will be a connecting link between the town and other towns, between the country and other countries. Faber is at the disposal of individuals, institutions, companies and non-profit organisations of Catalonia.
