Portugal: Artistic Residency

Imagine you would live and work in a lighthouse on the coast of Europe...
 
Portugal: Artistic Residency is a unique and creative environment for artists to foster their professional development while creating and realizing their artistic work. 
Portugal: Artistic Residency understands this as an important experience for young artists to develop their communication skills, intellectually interact with and reach out to the public, and receive audience feedback as they move forward with their projects.
