artist's residency in Portugal

ARTErra -Tondela, Portugal
ARTErra , a rural artistic residency in Portugal,
is calling for applications.
Lobao da Beira, the village where ARTErra is located,
is rural, in between two mountains, with green fields,
fresh air, and magnificent landscapes.
ARTERRA has two distinct spaces:
the house where the residents can do the meals,
rest, meet each other.
The second space is the "creation yard",
with different work places, ateliers, studio,
blackbox, documentation center and peaceful gardens.
The main objective is to facilitate
encounters between different artists
and aesthetic disciplines.
Deadline: 12-31-2011
