Open Call for VAGABUNDAS '24 launched

The VAGABUNDAS Artistic Residency Program is back for a second edition, with another Open Call that will be open until March 31st.

This residency is aimed at artists of Portuguese nationality or residents in Portugal, of legal age, who identify as female, whether cisgender or transgender , and can apply by filling out the online form available on our website.

VAGABUNDAS is an artistic creative residency that aims to promote artistic creation in the feminine and at the intersection with the development of decentralized artistic work, particularly in communities with development and desertification problems.

With an annual periodicity, this residency is inspired by the story of Mercedes Blasco, one of Conceição Vitória Marques' many pseudonyms, and the name of her best-known literary work “Vagabunda”, a diary of memories of the woman and the artist. Recognizing her importance and having her as an inspiration is to reinforce her existence, her legacy and give her the political relevance that, in life, Mercedes did not have.

The project schedule is made up of two phases, during the month of May at Mina de S. Domingos (Mértola) and in June in Lisbon:

  • Artistic residency between May 1st and 31st, 2024, at Mina de S. Domingos, Mértola with a public sharing session on May 30th, 2024 at the Cineteatro da Mina de S. Domingos.


  • In Lisbon, on the 1st and 2nd of June 2024, to prepare and hold the public session on the work developed in residence with DEBATE-CONFERENCE on the themes covered by the artists, which will take place on the 2nd of June 2024, Sunday, in Lisbon.

Two artists will be selected and will enjoy a month of creative residency at Mina de S.Domingos, with the right to a creative grant and accommodation and allowances for food and travel during the period of residence and stay in Lisbon (3 days) .

All information and regulations for this edition are available on our website .
