OBRAS-PORTUGAL is located on a hill overlooking a rolling landscape with cork oaks and a medieval fortress. The residency offers (emerging) professional artists an inspiring and peaceful, rural environment, with good working spaces and support for specific activities (such as open studio and other public events).
Generally there will be around six artists. Everyone works individually; collaborations are on your own initiative. Twice a week, an artist talk and shared dinner are organzied.
They organise artist talks in an informal setting for every resident, and also organise five open studios per year. In addition, they can organise exhibitions and other cultural events in nearby towns, although this has to be scheduled a year in advance and is generally the spin-off of an earlier residence. Site specific events may be organised on a shorter notice.
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 lots of places for working outside.
