AIR program in Fablab Buinho (Portugal) 2023


Living in a rural environment is nowadays an advantage. But Buinho offers more than just a safe place. We are located in the historic town of Messejana, Southern Portugal. Besides the surrounding natural landscape and heritage, our fablab and studios are equipped with all the necessary tools and equipment’s to enhance the possibilities of experimentation of our residents. Besides access to lasercut, 3D printing and other technologies, Buinho also provides free introductory courses and production assistance.


The Buinho Residency program is directed at creatives and researchers from different backgrounds. The artistic residencies encourage exchange, dialogue, and experimentation. The residencies are process-based, allowing visiting artists to develop projects in response to the relationship with the local environment and community, or to conduct research benefiting from Buinho’s resources, and the daily life and environment of Messejana.

Buinho is a European reference as the only artistic residencies based on a Fablab, enabling the merging of Art and Technology, or Art and Digital Fabrication. Ever since we have received visual artists, performance artists, photographers, curators, writers, sculptors, designers, media artists, from all the different continents.

Today Buinho offers private accommodation, shared and individual studios, a digital fabrication workshop, and exhibition spaces. Besides our own properties and equipment’s, we also run together with the local municipality a Precious Plastic Workshop, where resident artists can work with metal, larger sculpture pieces or installations, or recycle plastic.


 Monthly fees are the following:

1. São João larger bedroom with private bathroom - 850€;

2. São João other two bedrooms - 750€;

3. Joaquina’s Studio-house - 900€.
