Euroatla used to be an old sea transportation office and a small warehouse located by the harbour of Lisboa connecting the country with Africa and South America. As time passed by, we evolved into becoming a network of arts residency centres that connects international artists from around the globe.
The Euroatla residency is an independent artist space open for emerging and established artists that are looking for a place of reflection away from there usual environment. Euroatla aims at easing the exchange of experiences and knowledge among artists away from there individual research and production projects.
Away from the ordinary obstacles of everyday jobs, the residences will provide the artists with the time, space and resources to experiment and try new approaches surrounded by the Lisbon’s art scene and by being in contact with local artists that can take them away from your comfort zone and make them experience and see things from another perspective.
Duration of residency:
The minimum period of stay required is one month and the maximum of six months.
Euroatla will provide the artist with a private, self-contained living and working space located in a building with another working studio used by Portuguese artists based in the new upcoming art district of Beato-Marvila.
