The Artistic Residencies have the purpose of receiving artistic projects during a certain period of time, which will allow the development of an innovative work based on the context it is conducted in. The residencies have been developed in Convento de S. Francisco, in Telheiro da Encosta do Castelo, in Centro de Artes e Ofícios of Trás di Munti or in other appropriate locations (like Almansor River or Moinho do Ananil), in the field of Plastic Arts. The artists in residency have the opportunity to develop their own means to get involved with the places, thus contributing for a revaluation and for the sustainability of the local cultures.

As Residências Artísticas têm como objectivo a recepção de projectos artísticos durante um determinado período do tempo, que permita o desenvolvimento de um trabalho inovador a partir do contexto em que é realizado. As residências têm sido desenvolvidas no Convento de S. Francisco, no Telheiro da Encosta do Castelo, no Centro de Artes e Ofícios de Trás de Munti ou em outros locais apropriados (como o Rio Almansor ou o Moinho do Ananil), na área das Artes Plásticas. Os artistas em residência têm a oportunidade de desenvolver métodos próprios de envolvimento com os lugares, contribuindo para uma revalorização e para a sustentabilidade das culturas locais.

The selected candidates will receive a 500EU grant, paid on the first day of Residency. During the Residency, the artists will be given the possibility to spend up to 750EU in production related materials, available only according to the presentation of the expense documents. Any materials will be property of the Association after their use in benefit of the project. The Association assures lodging and alimentation during the residency’s period.
