The Residency program at Hangar encourages dialogue, exchange and experimentation. The program is non-prescriptive and process-based, allowing visiting artists to develop projects in response to their new environment, or to conduct research benefiting from Lisbon´s resources. The Residency Program is firmly established in the Lisbon art scene, promoting diverse cultures and practices through international and experimental projects.
Hangar develops several International Residency Programs that give non-resident artists in Portugal or Lisbon the opportunity to live and work in Lisbon for a period of one month to three months (longer periods can be arranged.) The program aims to facilitate the international exchange and the exchange of ideas through artistic practice in the areas of visual arts, performance, photography and video.
Through strategic partnerships in the international art world and institutions linked to cultural production and artistic research in various countries, mainly through the Triangle Network, Hangar program aims to strengthen the existing exchange between Portugal, Europe, Africa and South America.
