Atlas residency

Atlas residency is an opportunity for international artists to experience the countryside within close reach to Lisbon.

This new residency space emerges from the already established Euroatlas studio residency based in Lisbon, from a need to reconnect with ways of living and creating that are in touch with the environment.  Atlas is an artistic lab exploring the interaction in between nature and creativity.

The residency is situated 60km West from Lisbon, in between the urban, the rural and the beach. The space is located in the village Caravlhal of the Bombarral Municipality, next to the vibrant and historical town of Caldas da Rainha. Caldas has a great tradition in the arts with a main art college and is very known for its ceramics traditions .  

The Atlas  residency is an independent artist space, with an independent focused program opened for emerging and established artists that are looking for a place of reflection away from their usual environment and that are self-sufficient in their research.
