Córtex Frontal is a private structure of incentive to the creation. Located in Arraiolos, a small town in Alentejo Region, Portugal.

Since January 2016 we run a programme of self oriented artist residencies where we aim to provide time and space to reflect, discuss and create. We welcome professional artists, researchers, workgroups and art students.

We accept NOW applications for residencies from March to November 2018.

We are especially interested in projects related to the space: the residency itself, the town or the region. We will encourage projects that will leave a trace behind, being an agent of exchange/integration with the local community.

We are interested in projects from the following disciplines:

  • Painting / Drawing
  • Printmaking (in collaboration with Imagem Impressa Association)
  • Video / Film making
  • Dance (in collaboration with Casa das Artes)
  • Theater
  • Photography
  • Music
  • Sculpture: ceramics
  • Textile Art
  • Literature/Poetry
  • Educational Programmes
  • Landscape Design, Art and Agriculture
 Córtex Frontal is an official Member of Res Artis.
