It’s getting colder, cozier and the sunsets over the Lisbon horizon are still shortening. With the new year just around the corner, we are delighted to announce an open call for a multi-disciplinary artist residency in the lovely beach town of Parede just outside of Lisbon. The residency will be a collaboration with and hosted by Ouriço, a cultural gem located in Parede. Ouriço holds space for 4-6 artists who will be able to create an interactive artistic experience in the spacious house. The chosen artists will spend a week in accommodation nearby Ouriço, with workshops and brainstorming sessions each day with the aim of producing a collaborative multi-disciplinary event on the final day. The artists will receive accommodation to avoid daily travels and breakfast as well as an onboarding into the NEAR ecosystem. We will create one NFT per artist which will then be sold in the muti mintbase store.
We ask every artist to prepare a workshop of about 45 min which can be shared with the group. The workshops are intended to share knowledge whilst also strengthening connections between participants and each artist is free to choose the theme and focus of their session.
As no travel expenses will be included, we are looking for artists located in Portugal.
We provide a budget of 100 USD in N per artist to cover the materials to create the final show.

Ouriço and muti collective are combining to host an intensive 6 day Artist Residency in which Artists will work collaboratively to create a multi-disciplinary performance/event presented on the final day. We are looking for 4-6 Artists to work in residence at Ouriço from Monday 10th January to Friday 14th January with a performance/event on Saturday 15th January 2022. Accommodation will be provided for selected artists and may consist of both private and shared dorm rooms, depending on availability.
The theme for the residency and performance is “The Fool’s Journey”.
“When the Fool takes his next step, he will walk off the mountain ledge. It is possible he will plummet to his death. It is possible he will walk on air and cross the divide. Only time will tell.”
The fool’s journey is a metaphor for the timeless tale of the human’s passage through life, a shared yet individual journey. It is an exploration of new beginnings and endings… and then a new beginning and new end… and so on.
The performance will be an interactive experience carrying visitors along a journey through a labyrinth of wonders and uncertainty. We are looking for artists of all disciplines who are keen storytellers and enjoy working in collaboration to create an immersive world within Ouriço.
