  • Description


    Hi, my name is Nicola! I am a teacher and single parent who runs a non profit organisation. In this organization we have a beautiful project, a non formal platform for creatives in the center of Portugal. Based in a old building in the center of Caldas da Rainha, 5 minuts from the beach and Óbidos, 20 minuts from Peniche and Nazaré and 80km from Lisbon. We are regenerating the whole building although we already have a multipurpose room for concerts and theater, a gallery for exhibitions, workshops and bar! A really cool place to be creative!
