CASAdelDRAGON create the first spanish “University of informel education (UNIIE)”. Informal education is given “between” the workshops and classes we offer. Based on the concept of the residence, to host the artists, helpers, wwoofers and supporters in a part-time living community, we exchange knowledge and information in normal tasks like cooking together or arranging the daily life (organizing, repairing, upgrading).

The artists live together with the members of familiafeliz, a decentralized living community which runs the residence, and all wwoofers and other helpers.

The main focus is to create a stable, peaceful and creative enviroment for the artists to follow their own projects. The residence offer working spaces for drawing, painting, sculpturing, land art and much more creative activities on a plot of land nearby.
