Art Residency

“Applications for an art residency will be assessed on an individual basis and are available all year round. Applicants can apply for residencies from 3 weeks to six months each”

Art Center Caravel is pleased to announce its program of Art Residencies available on the gloriously photogenic sub-tropical Portuguese island of Madeira.
Applications for an art residency will be assessed on an individual basis and are available all year round. Applicants can apply for residencies from 3 weeks to six months each

Applicants may be young artists beginning their careers, established artists mid-career, or even Sunday painters. All applications will be carefully considered.
Residencies will consist of a free semi-public studio space within the Art Center´s galleries. Art materials can be supplied at cost or artists may bring their own. Accommodation and travel costs are not included, but help to acquire them certainly is from the Center´s experienced team of art professionals!
Any works produced during the residency may be considered for inclusion in the current commercial gallery exhibitions, by consent of the curatorial management.


Why not experience the impact of this extraordinary, unique environment on your sensibilities? The island has been home to a number of visiting artists over the years as well as enjoying a thriving international artistic community today. Its rugged landscapes, its rich flora and fauna, its historic setting, its majestic skies, and the warmth of its people are all sources of inspiration. All you have to do is arrive at our doorstep with an open mind and heart…
