Residency in Portugal in May, June, August - October 2018

residence with spacious apartments and studios, surrounded by nature.

Description of residency program
OBRAS-PORTUGAL is located on a hill overlooking a rolling landscape with cork oaks and a medieval fortress. Nature starts at your doorstep. Highlights in the wider surroundings are megalithic monuments, marble quarries, dreamy villages and Évora: a university town with UNESCO world heritage status.
We offer (emerging) professional artists an inspiring residency in a peaceful, rural environment, with good working spaces and support for specific activities (such as open studio and other public events).
Generally there will be some six artists. Each works individual; collaborations are on your own initiative. Twice a week we organise an artist talk and a shared dinner. 

Duration of residency
3 - 9 weeks

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
Disciplines include visual arts, music, writing and performing arts. Several music instruments (including piano) and basic material for painting and sculpting are available.

Accommodation and studio/ workspace
The Centre has eight double-bed apartments (each with own kitchen, bathroom and terrace) and two cottages. In case you need in addition a studio for working: five studios are available ranging in size from 5x5m up to 10x30m. There are a swimming pool and lots of places for working outside.

Fees and support
The rate for one person for renting an apartment is 100 € per week. If you need in addition a studio this is 25 € per week. See www.obras-art.org (page: Artists in Residence) for more information, including rates, application procedure and specific features.
