POOL_ art&design studio



POOL studio is a hybrid project, residence, studio_gallery, and workshops in a private touristic village in Comporta, 1h and 15 minutes from Lisbon, a swoop of coast between the Sado Estuary and the sea. Surrounded by rice paddies, the ocean, sand dunes and pine forests. This region is particularly well maintained, partly because it is largely classified as a ‘highly protected nature reserve’. It’s a unique place, where you can connect with nature. Right in front of the studio there is a swimming pool, and its 5 min from the beach.

If you are an artist, designer, photographer, etc, etc searching for a studio to rent abroad this is a perfect place for working and have holidays at the some time. 

You will have a room, doube or single and a working space about 25 m2.

CALL FOR ARTISTS (Visual arts and Music)

Other Lands, Other Sounds 2019

A Residential Course for Collaborative Arts Practice in Góis, Portugal
August 28 - September 09, 2019


An intensive residential course bringing together visual artists and musicians to work collaboratively over ten days, creating new works combining photography, moving image, music, and sound art. Surrounded by the beautiful mountainside scenery of Gois, Portugal, Other Lands, Other Sounds 2019 offers a supportive environment for advanced practitioners (professionals, amateurs, students) who want to develop their practice through cross-arts experimentation and collaboration. Musicians will work closely with composer Filipe Sousa, exploring devised composition, improvisation, and collaborative music-making processes. Visual artists will work with Beatriz Martinez, exploring photography and video, and how to merge aesthetics and concept into multi-disciplinary projects. Intensive work sessions will be balanced with nature hikes, local sightseeing, swimming in the river, visiting local cafes and enjoying the relaxed pace of rural Portuguese life.

“The Other Lands, Other Sounds programme is fantastic – a great opportunity to explore composition and improvisation processes and approaches in a beautiful and supportive environment. The town of Gois is an ideal location for exploring creativity and artistry. I am very pleased to have chosen this programme and the support I received has really helped my work." (Other Lands, Other Sounds 2017 Testimonial)

€850 fee, €250 deposit (includes room and board, and tuition, does not include travel to Góis)Spaces limited
