Description of the residency program
Portugal has eased Covid-19 lockdown measures and we are reopening our residency program in August. We adapted our program in full compliance to COVID19 safety recommendations.
Living in a rural environment is an advantage, but Buinho offers more than just a safe place. We are in the historic town of Messejana, Southern Portugal. Besides the surrounding natural landscape and heritage, our fablab and studios are equipped with all the necessary tools and equipment’s to enhance the possibilities of experimentation of our residents. Besides access to lasercut, 3D printing and other technologies, Buinho also provides free introductory courses and production assistance.
Buinho Fablab opened in 2016, and became a European reference as the only artistic residencies based on a Fablab, enabling the merging of Art, Technology and Digital Fabrication. Ever since we have received visual artists, performance artists, photographers, curators, writers, sculptors, designers, media artists, from all the different continents, confirming the eclectic nature of our program.
Accommodation and assistance
The Buinho creative artist residency program provides private accommodation and working spaces in two main different locations. Both houses are fully equipped, free Wi-Fi access is available in all interior and exterior spaces, and cleaning service also included.
Our staff provides curatorial support, production support, and access to the fablab equipment’s and spaces. Buinho AIR program also provides free weekly tutorials and workshops about 3D printing, 3D modeling, CNC and laser cutting, robotics, and plastic recycling.
