Besides creating and touring creations of our own and of our associated artists, Circolando promotes creative residencies, aiming at researching, meeting, sharing and supporting artistic creation. Our work space is located in the old Freixo Power Plant, now Cace Cultural do Porto, a space with interesting industrial architecture, easy access to the center and a good panoramic view and proximity to the river.
Organized in several independent rooms, we have quality spaces adapted to the different phases of the creative projects: research, essays, workshop, production, presentation and informal shows.
Sending of proposals
You may send your proposal by email with a synopsis, biographical note of the associated team, proposal of residence dates, links to useful information (websites, videos, information about previous projects…).
Circolando belongs to Inresidenceporto, a platform which promotes art residency spaces and projects based in Porto.
In the framework of this partnership with the Porto City Council, we grant each year an In Residence grant from 4000€-6000€ for a medium-term residence of one artist / collective.
*The projects for Inresidence 2018 and 2019 are already chosen.
Starting in 2019, Circolando will launch 2 open calls per year. The selected residencies will be granted some financial support as well as workspace and some technical support.
Dates and conditions to be announced here in due course.
A normal residence hosting involves just work space and some technical support, but no financial support.
