    Hello! My name is Miguel, I’m 42 years old, and I’m a writer and filmmaker who, seven years ago, relocated from Lisbon to live in the house built by my paternal great-grandparents, in Vale do Pereiro, near Sertã, central Portugal. In the time since I have moved here, I have founded a non-profit cultural association for the region, through which I carry out various projects and events, including artist’s residencies, concerts, film-productions, and more. I also work teaching Karate to local children twice a week. The house is set in a very rural environment, and I am surrounded by nature. Living with me here I have a cat named Matisse, and two dogs, Flecha (which means ‘arrow’) and Darwin.

    Chamo-me Miguel, tenho 42 anos, sou escritor e cineasta e há 7 anos mudei-me de Lisboa para a casa que pertenceu aos meus bisavós paternos, na aldeia do Vale do Pereiro, Sertã, centro de Portugal. Mudado para cá, criei uma associação cultural sem fins lucrativos, com a qual tenho vindo a desenvolver projectos nessa área e que passam pelo acolhimento de artistas, curadoria de eventos, produção de cinema, etc. Além do projecto associativo dou aulas de Karate a crianças e jovens desta zona. Vivo num contexto rural, rodeado pela natureza, e comigo tenho um gato chamado Matisse e dois cães, a Flecha e o Darwin.

  • Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Os visitantes que vieram ajudar-me terão, além da oferta de alimentação e alojamento pelo tempo da estadia, a possibilidade de conhecer a região, um pouco da língua e de trabalhar nos seus próprios projectos. Os horários de trabalho são flexíveis e nascem do acordo entre as duas partes. Além do trabalho planeado e dos objectivos que se pretendem alcançar, um dos pontos que definirão a experiência como plena de sucesso será o nascimento de uma amizade.

    All workaways will be offered food and accommodation for the duration of their stay, and it will be possible for them to explore the local area (we can take trips together), improve their Portuguese language skills, and they will also have plenty of time to work on their own projects, artistic or otherwise. All ‘working’ hours are flexible and will be decided upon via mutual agreement. Aside from the work that needs carrying out, I hope to be able to form friendships with each person who comes to stay.

    I am looking for help with the refurbishment and upkeep of the house, which I want to adapt for use by my cultural association. At the moment I am repurposing the top floor into a space of accommodation for artists in residency. I am also redoing the large and currently unused ground floor (which has an entrance onto the road running alongside the house) which I intend to open to the public as the headquarters of the association. My plan is for it to include a café, a film-room, a library, an exhibition space, as well as studies/offices. At this precise moment in time I am in need of people who may be able to help with the following things: small bits of DIY, wall-painting, cleaning, wiring (someone with competency as an electrician would be ideal). And beyond that, of course, I need people who can help me with ideas!



    Preciso de ajuda na manutenção e adaptação da casa ao projecto associativo. Estou neste momento a adaptar o último andar da casa ao acolhimento de artistas em residência; e o rés-do-chão à abertura ao público (sede da associação, que funcionará com café, cinema, biblioteca, galeria de arte, espaços de trabalho e escritórios). Nesta fase será necessário contar com gente que possa ajudar nas seguintes tarefas: pequenas obras, pinturas, limpezas, electricidade; canalização, ideias.

    There are a couple of options you can take in order to arrive in Vale do Pereiro. You can catch a train to Vila Velha de Ródão (there’s a direct service from Lisbon), which is situated some 40km from here. Otherwise you can catch a coach to Sertã, a town around 8km away. In both cases someone will come and collect you when you arrive. Vale do Pereiro is a village that does not contain any shops or amenities—the town of Sertã is where we’ll be able to find these: there are several supermarkets, and many cafés and shops. There are busses to and from Sertã, however they only come twice a day, so the best thing is for us to coordinate on our trips ‘into civilisation’. There is also a bicycle available (with side-compartments for carrying shopping) for anyone more athletically inclined; be warned that the hills means it takes only about 15 minutes to arrive in Sertã, but around 45 to get back!



    Para chegar ao Vale do Pereiro pode escolher-se o comboio para Vila Velha de Ródão, que fica a 40 kms, ou o autocarro para a Sertã, que fica a 8 kms. Em qualquer dos casos alguém os irá buscar aos respectivos lugares. A casa fica numa aldeia onde não há quaisquer comércio ou serviços. A Vila da Sertã é o sítio onde podemos encontrar tudo: mercado, cafés, comércio em geral. Há autocarros de cá para lá e de lá para cá, mas o mais fácil é organizarmos juntos as idas "à cvilização". Também há bicicleta (com alforges) para os mais atléticos: 15 minutos para ir e 45 (!) para voltar.
