The purpose of the Association is to promote artist expression, by inviting both Portuguese and international artists or curators to (re)discover the disciplines covered by this art form and to promote all aspects of the city of Lisbon, especially as regards its culture, architecture, history and society (among other areas).

The Association is rooted within the local community but is looking to expand internationally. It seeks to share and exchange ideas with people from both Lisbon and the rest of the world and exhibits contemporary art created by artists in residence.

The Association focuses not only on strengthening social and cultural links, but also on strengthening interactions with the international art world in order to enable resident artists to carry out new projects and to raise awareness of their work.

One of the Association?s main purposes is to provide accommodation for both Portuguese and international plastic artists or curators by offering them a place of residence in Lisbon.
