Program Description

Open call for our residency in the mountains of Cerdeira, in the center of Portugal. We invite artists abroad to live and create among these beautiful hills, far from their routines, either for working in a new project or just to take some time to themselves. The tranquility of the village, its magnificent views, the comfort of the houses, its unique charm and the calmness of the surrounding nature make it the perfect place for you to be inspired with no interruptions. Cerdeira Village Art & Craft created the artistic residences in 2014, in the unique environment of a recovered village of schist houses, surrounded by mountains and streams. These circumstances offer the artist an opportunity to get in touch with nature in a very special way - the village belongs to the people ... and the deer! The location of this residence makes it very original and unique. In this context, these circumstances offer the artist an opportunity to get in touch with nature in a very special way.
