Buinho was established in 2015 in the town of
Buinho Artist in Residency program is directed to creative individuals from different disciplines and is developed by a rural creative hub that opened in 2015 in Alentejo. It gives the opportunity to live and work in the small town of Messejana for a period of up to three months.
Buinho provides 4 individual rooms for accommodation, private format and shared studios, access to fablab and Precious Plastic workstation, all within a network of creative spaces managed by Buinho and within Messejana.
These artistic residencies encourage dialogue, exchange, and experimentation. They are process-based, allowing visiting artists to develop projects in response to the relationship with the local environment and community, or to conduct research benefiting from Buinho's resources, and the daily life and environment of Messejana.
The residency program offers creative individuals the time, space, and resources to experiment and try project solutions and approaches. Through the living Messejana's unique atmosphere, creatives can gain new insights that will inform the development of their practice.
Buinho Residency Program offers production support for exhibitions and technical support for the unique feature that it is the Buinho fablab. Also, our staff is keen to discuss the work in progress and assist in sourcing materials, offering local knowledge, contacts, and creative input.
We also offer weekly workshops in digital fabrication including 3D modeling, 3D printing, laser cutting, and creative practices within a fablab.
A final presentation is displayed during an open studio, where the local community has an opportunity to meet with the artists and provide feedback on their work.
Buinho mediates the possibility to exhibit in alternative spaces of Messejana as the ethnographic Museum or the local chapels. Participants are also invited to partake in artist talks, workshops, and open studio events with local partners.
