Due to two cancellations OBRAS-Portugal still has place for residencies between 6 till 30 September

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 work individually; collaborations are on your own initiative. Twice a week we organize an artist talk and shared dinner. 

Duration of residency
25 days

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