WHERE IT WILL TAKE PLACE?
The FLL Art Residency is located in the village of Lapa do Lobo, district of Viseu, Portugal.
The artist will be staying at Slow. Slow is a coworking & coliving space that challenges one to slow down and find a balance between the time dedicated to work, to oneself and to others. The house, located in the center of Lapa do Lobo, gives people back the time to do what they thought they no longer had time to do. Reading, having long conversations, experiencing emotions, cycling, learning to bake bread with Mrs. Maria, hiking in the Serra da Estrela, visiting wineries, and tasting Dão wine. In this village built over granite, the time flows slower and everything can be a source of inspiration.
WORKING SPACES AVAILABLE
Besides the spaces in the house, artists can benefit, by appointment, from the facilities and resources of the Lapa do Lobo Foundation, namely:
Multifunctional Building Room
The Lapa do Lobo Foundation provides accommodation, work spaces and a daily allowance of 15€ per residency. The remaining costs are borne by the artists.
Additionally, FLL and Slow are happy to offer two experiences among the following ones:
- Yoga class
- Traditional bread workshop
- Guided hiking
- Biking tour
