Casa da Tia+Quintal is a platform for Creative Residencies – a multi-disciplinary exchange, that presents a time and space for meeting a new/real context to think and/or work. Taking much into account site-specific projects with the local community, students, and partners.
The invitation is extended to practitioners or students of all disciplines (including Visual-Installation/Sound Artists, Historians, Curators, Designers, Scientists, Architects, Writers and Culture Researchers) of all backgrounds and areas, interested in implementing special projects and development of work in a decentralized, but not desertified locale – village of Pernes, Portugal, Europe.
Pernes town hall belongs to Santarém Municipality in Portugal’s central region and is a rural area surrounded by the Alviela and Centeio rivers and the National Natural Reserves of Serra de Aire e Candeeiros and Paúl do Boquilobo. Pernes is 14.500Km2 and has a population of 1689, and encompasses the villages of Chã de Baixo, Outeiro de Fora, Moita and Póvoa das Mós. It reaches about 1:00 hour from Lisbon, Portugal’s capital, and 2:30 from Oporto.
With some roads, some ruins, squares, some centenary’s auditoriums, some wood processing factories and old hydroelectric plants, markets, bridges, library, a local ethnographic museum, schools, old and young people’s houses and landscapes with sound and, almost, silence, Pernes nature needs to be experienced/changed up close.
