The Residency Program at Hangar encourages dialogue, exchange and experimentation. 

The program is non-prescriptive and process-based, allowing visiting artists and writers to develop

projects in response to their new environment, or to conduct research benefiting from Lisbon’s resources.


The Residencies Program is firmly established in the Lisbon arts scene, promoting diverse cultures 

and practices through international and experimental projects. Our aim is to nurture interdisciplinary 

and conceptual visual arts, with special focus on cross cultural connections, explorations of the

postcolonial, diasporic experience, history and memory.


Hangar develops several International Residency Programs that give non-resident artists in Portugal

or Lisbon the opportunity to live and work in Graça, Lisbon for a period of one month to three

months. Longer residencies can also be arranged upon request. The program aims to facilitate the

international exchange and the exchange of ideas through artistic practice in the areas of visual arts,

performance, photography and video.


Through strategic partnerships in the international art world and institutions linked to cultural

production and artistic research in various countries, mainly through the Triangle Network, the

Hangar residency program aims to strengthen the existing exchange between Portugal, Europe,

Africa and South America.


Duration of Residency

The Spring Residency is from March 2021 to June 2021.


Disciplines, work equipment and assistance

HANGAR invites artists who practice the visual arts, with special focus on those who work in

filmmaking, photography and performance. The special equipment HANGAR provides includes:

D.Y.A. tools, studio space, a photo laboratory, a music atelier, a library and Internet access.



Hangar offers 7 living and work studios for residency in a private format. There are 4 studios with

private bathroom and kitchenette facilities and 3 private studios that have a co-working format with

shared kitchen and WC facilities.


Studio/ Workspace

The private accommodation and studio are located within the same space. Artists also have access

to shared co-working studio space.


Fees and Support

Artists are expected to pay for their expenses. This includes studio space and accommodation,

which are both in-situ at the gallery. Costs start from €750.00/month to €1,000.00/month.


Expectations of the Artist

Artists are expected to partake in Artist Talks, Workshops and Open Studio events at Hangar. This is

a valuable opportunity for artists to promote and raise awareness about their work, giving them the

chance to create a dialogue of exchange between themselves and the diverse audiences that attend

the events, thus working to raise their artist profile.
