They do not expect the artist to necessarily realize a complete project during the residency period, but to use the period as a catalyst for further work or as a means to concentrate in completing some vital phase in their project.
Córtex Frontal is a multidisciplinary cultural project created in 2016 in Arraiolos, Évora, Alentejo, 110km far from Lisbon and 20km from Évora. They welcome professional artists, writers, researchers and workgroups in search of time and space to reflect, discuss and create. Their goal is to promote and develop cultural projects, establishing a lively dialogue between artists from various disciplines and the local community.
The call for applications is open year-round for residency proposals from March to December, for a minimum period of 3 weeks. Projects with relevance to the Portuguese context and the local community will be especially appreciated, in Visual Arts, Performative Arts, Literature and Music. Workgroups in residence (up to 15 people) for short, mid or long term are welcome.
The residency provides housing and studios and technical/artistic/critical support. Study trips to artistic/cultural/industrial heritage, open studios and local community events are part of their program and they will encourage resident artists to join.
Open studio, workshop.
Artists accommodation and house studios are located in the center of the town, in XVIII century manor house. The area for residency has 6 rooms, 1 kitchen, 4 bathrooms, a meeting and projection room, studios and workspaces, terrace, garden and courtyard. Single artists will be accommodated in private rooms with a private or shared bathroom according to availability. Couple of artists will be accommodated in a double room with a private or shared bathroom. The house can host up to 15 people in shared rooms. Big groups can reserve the whole house if noticed in advance.
According to the discipline and needs, there will be assigned a working space for each artist in a private or shared studio. Each working space is furnished with table, chair, light, shelves and wall boards. The organisers currently run a Printmaking program in a printmaking/silkscreen studio. For that specific program check out the Open Call: ARP Artist Residency for Printmakers.
