ARTIST RESIDENCY Be a part of a creative and artistic hub in an environment where art and nature live closely together. Come to Cerdeira and make the most of our equipment, studios and support. Here, your artistic project can start to take shape, and you can share ideas, knowledge and experiences with other artists. You have two artist residency options: in an individual house or in a hostel-style shared accommodation, as you can see below. Hidden away in a small valley at 700m above sea level, Cerdeira was a village of schist houses at risk of disappearing after agricultural activity was abandoned in the middle of the 20th Century. Almost 300 years old, the village was built by courageous people, farmers who lived off the land and who, even if they left in search of a better life for their families, would always come back and visit their home.
A Cerdeira is located in Central Portugal, less than an hour away from Coimbra.
