AiR Carpintarias / FLAD 2022






The AiR Carpintarias / FLAD 2022 is a three-month artist residency, directed to individual artists or artist duos in Fine Arts. FLAD Luso-American Development Foundation supports this artistic residency. 

AiR Carpintarias / FLAD 2022 is intended for North-American artists not residing in Portugal or Portuguese-Americans. 

The AiR offers a monthly artist fee plus flight costs; an apartment for the artist is also provided for.

CSL - Carpintarias de São Lázaro is a contemporary cultural center where creativity, innovation and multidisciplinary intersect giving an opportunity to bring people, communities and knowledge together. 

CSL opened in 2017 with a multidisciplinary and transversal programming. From dance shows and classical and electronic music concerts to architecture congresses, it was also the exhibitions with Los Carpinteros, Alfredo Jaar, Jorge Molder, Marina Abramovic, Per Barclay and Miles Greenberg (performance) that have marked this cultural space in the city of Lisbon. 

Located in the historical center of the Portuguese capital, between Martim Moniz Square and Campo dos Mártires da Pátria, its goal is to generate new possibilities of creation and performance and also the reception and development of relevant artistic skills, supporting traditional and contemporary cultural production. 

This program is organized by the Visual Arts department of CSL and will be held inside the Cultural Center, in a close relationship with the immediate neighborhood, the city and the local artistic community. 

CSL is located in the historic center of the city, in a particular area, very marked by the great variety of cultural communities that gather around the Martim Moniz Square. The last time City Hall did a survey, besides Portuguese residents, more than 100 different cultural ethnicities lived in this part of town (the main ones being from Africa, Bangladesh, China, India and Pakistan; but people from Brazil, Ukraine, Nepal and Russia also live here) and, more recently, with the urban rehabilitation process of this area, new communities have settled like French, Americans and Italians, among others. All these communities are very different at first sight, but many of them have common characteristics such as their dedication to work, usually in retail, and their lifestyle being very attached to their cultural traditions of origin and perhaps a bit disconnected to the local contemporary context.

The goal of AiR Carpintarias / FLAD 2022 is to challenge the artists to create strategies on how to bring people from the surrounding communities to engage in the cultural space of contemporary creation of CSL. The leitmotif is the idea of and reflection on the concept of community. What is 'community' and how is it built; how can we build 'community' through contemporary art? 

A reflection that may lead to an integration of the cultural differences of the neighboring communities, through contemporary creation, and that establishes approaches in which tradition does not prevent the creation of new shared cultural contexts and favors the sharing of contents and the creation of new common perceptions. 

In the aforementioned sense, we invite artists to submit proposals for AiR Carpintarias / FLAD 2022 suggesting a strategy for concrete interactions with the populations neighboring the cultural center, which may have various formats: workshops, meetings to be recorded in the space, a joint project with members of these communities and, ideally, in its final presentation also in the presence and with the participation of these people.

Fact check:

3-month residency + time for final presentation

Monthly fee of 400 € per artist / artist duo + apartment 

Travel charges with flight (return ticket) are paid for by Carpintarias de São Lázaro.

Linha de Fuga






In 2022, Linha de Fuga holds the third edition of the International Laboratory that promotes the meeting between creators, artists and thinkers from different countries, in a field of experimentation, learning and sharing of collective knowledge. It takes place in Coimbra (Portugal), between September 16th and October 9th 2022, through seminars and workshops, for the exchange of practices, coordinated by invited artists, with access to workspaces and the critical assessment of the festival's curators and artists.

In parallel to the Laboratory, it takes place the International Festival, with performances, conferences and talks, in which the participating artists can attend and to which they can also add the presentation of their work in progress.

Candidate Profile

The Laboratory is aimed at arts professionals with a minimum creation path and no age limit. We are looking for artists who want to start, develop, and expose their processes and interact with the criticism of their work, both by their peers and audience.

There are also in this call, one or two vacancies for documenters/archivists whose role will be to follow the entire Laboratory and its practices from a subjective and critical perspective, with the intention to return to society its vision of documenting the ephemeral and the transmission of knowledge developed by artistic practices.


The Laboratory brings together 15 participants/creators who must present themselves to this call with a work in process  — which may be at different stages of development — that should consider the «care» for the other (understood as the care for the Common Good) as a driving force, and that will be their object of research during the whole Laboratory period. The candidate documenters, should consider as a proposal the relevance of archiving and disseminating events of this nature, making a proposal also considering the topic under discussion this year and be available for the development of this documentation/archive beyond the date of the Laboratory (see the results of last editions here).

Conceived under the logic of a temporal ephemeral collective, Linha de Fuga will have spaces/moments of collective work where participants can confront and work on their artistic projects in relation to other practices; and individual work periods, defined by each participant (in collaboration with other participants, in individual feedback sessions with peers or in the development of their individual research).

In addition to the workshops and seminars, artists will be accompanied by the curatorial team of the Laboratory and Festival, in particular by Thiago Granato, co-curator of the Festival who, through his knowledge as a creator and researcher, will be available in the guidance of each artists investigations and performative practices.

All our attention and care goes into cultivating a space where artists can recognize and locate their own works and practices within an environment that is increasingly capable of sustaining a reflective and inclusive art culture.



Since the end of 2021, the curatorial team decided that in this edition they wanted to rethink «The Ethics of Care». After two years in which the most heard words were COVID-19 and pandemic, where we suffered from the self-repression of social isolation and a spectrum of collective depression, will the caring for the Other (understood as caring for the Common Good) have the radical potential to facilitate dialogue, understanding and social transformation? And what can be the role of art in this debate? At a time when a war lurks in Europe’s daily lives, we consider this focus even more important, looking at the Other with the tenderness and sympathy necessary to generate less imbalances on this unique planet that is ours.

By proposing this discussion, we intend to draw attention to situations of vulnerability — pandemics, wars and many other situations — that exist in the world, and the inequalities that these can cause in intersocial relationships. We also want to point out the creative power of new forms of existence arising from what is invisible, silent, ambiguous, fragile, itinerant and absent in a world undergoing radical changes.

In a delicate, vulnerable moment such as the one we are going through, barely out of a pandemic and witnessing the invasion of a neighbouring country, it becomes imperative to allow this next edition to evolve into a discussion on this subject and to accept that, as stated by João Maris André, "vulnerability conditions the human being as a whole, in its physical and corporeal dimension, as in its psychic and spiritual one." This philosopher considers that "in pain and passion, body and spirit aren't indissociable, but one and the same, which is why we love with the body and suffer with the mind, thereby suggesting a presence of practical reason - more so than pure reason - within us, in which thought and affectivity intersect in the body that we are and through which we declare ourselves in the vicissitudes of our identity."

The International Creative Laboratory is an initiative by Linha de Fuga – Associação Cultural, funding by Direção Geral das Artes, in partnership with (and taking place in) various spaces and organisations in Coimbra.
