Call For Artists And Projects, Summer 2015 - Cerdeira Village

A peaceful place where you can connect with nature and be fully creative!

Get inspired by the portuguese mountains! Discover the breath-taking beauty of a schist village that was reconstructed and is now seeking for a new life.

The Cerdeira Village Art & Craft Residency Program was designed for active young visual artists, writers, painters, sculptors, musicians, and other creative individuals who value nature , authenticity and silence.

What you can expect…

Located in a rural setting, this program provides a quiet and inspiring place for you to start a new project or finish one.

Our village was abandoned many years ago. We are reconstructing it to give it a new life! We have some sporadic guests and visitors but only four people live there permanently. Because of this, we don't want you to have false expectations of what you're going to find here. We don't have a public besides the artists participating in the program. For that reason, we usually don't organize public presentations or exhibition in the village.
We provide you with basic technical assistance, shared workshop facilities and housing for the weekly fee.

Our residency program is designed to provide the ideal environment for artistic creation without any kind of pressure, sharing of experiences and cooperation while in direct contact with a natural setting.

What we expect from you...

Artists must keep the house clean and cook their own meals.

Travel expenses, food and other supplies are paid by the artists.

A collaboration activity/project/workshop to share with the rest of the residents.

It is also expected that once a week, they take part in some of the village activities and participate in a follow-up dinner.

Suggestions are always welcome!
