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!
DIY and building projects
Travelers will get to know a group of young productive creatives increasing their self network! To interact with local population, know the region, learn the language. Also have pottery workshop as well as to know and collaborate on the managing process of of our project.
We would like to welcome travelers who might help us on building and painting walls. Also to participate in event production such as creative markets (e.g.: buiding small structures to decorate a square where the market happens, set the tables for creatives to sell their works / if there's a market schedulled in the dates of the staiyng) or small concerts production (e.g.: set decoration of the stage, no heavy or electric stuff, cleaning of the concert room before and after the concert, welcoming the audience)
