  • Description

    Description

    We're a small group of 3 artists who got together and renovated an entire house with the purpose of built an artist collective for the community. It will be a house with art exhibitions, workshops, lectures, jam meetings, etc - as we are all very diverse and work with a lot of artists of different fields.

    PT
    Somos um pequeno grupo de artistas, que se juntaram e renovaram um casa inteira, com o objectivo de criar um espaço coletivo cultural dedicado à cultura. O projecto será uma casa com pequenas exposições periódicas, workshops, palestras, encontros musicais, entre outros.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The house is located in Estoril, close to the beach (5min walk). Close to the train station Cascais line (from Lisbon to Cascais). We'll offer you the experience of leaving with a bunch of artists, have good conversations specially if you're interested in the arts or the culture. We also have a small library that our visitors can use, as well as a collection of movies and music archives. We all speak English and Portuguese - being our mother tongue - we can share and teach Portuguese while you stay with us.

  • Help

    Help

    We would welcome people to help up do some maintenance on the house. From gardening to a little (re)construction (ex. taking the old cement from 2 walls and screwing in new pladur walls - guided and taught by a professional). We want to build 2 compost pile-boxes, and a few raised beds to grow some vegetables for the resident artists. Cleaning the Garden and painting walls, floors and furniture is also a very desired skill :D

    PT
    Para este projecto, precisamos maioritáriamente de ajuda na manutenção e terminar a renovação do espaço. Desde jardinagem (limpar jardim, cuidar das plantas existentes, criar duas caixas de composto e algumas camas para vegetais).
    Será também necessário picar cimento de algumas paredes de dois estudios e colocar paredes de pladur (ensinado por um profissional). Trabalhos de pintura de paredes, chão e mobilia também são muito apreciados.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    This is a quiet neighborhood. The house has one resident cat, and surrounded by neighbor dogs. We may accept other friendly animals - tell us first to confirm - one of us has 2 dogs, that may show up from time to time.
    The 3 of us live very independent lives, we are teachers, artisans, and we also have our jobs. So availability is due to our confirmation. Also this is a mostly vegetarian house, although we also tolerate other diets.
    As this is the first time we're using this platform as hosts. Some of us had a few experiences as workawayers ourselves.
    Feel free to ask any questions!

    PT
    O espaço está localizado num local tranquilo. Temos um gato e os vizinhos à volta têm cães. Aceitamos animais - embora necessite de confirmação prévia da nossa parte - um de nós tem dois cães que são residentes de tempos a tempos.
    Os 3 temos vidas bastante independentes, somos professores, artesãos e também temos outros trabalhos. Por isso as estadias terão de ser confirmadas com antecedência.
    Esta é uma casa maioritáriamente vegetariana. Embora sejam toleradas outras dietas.
    Esta é a primeira vez que usamos a plataforma como anfitriões, mas alguns de nós já tiveram as suas experiências como workawayers.
    Pff fica à vontade para colocar questões.
