Fábrica das Ideias is a cultural equipment specialized in creative residencies, particularly dedicated to the visual and performing arts.
With the purpose of welcoming and supporting artists in their creative process, and to bring cultural production into Gafanha da Nazaré´s daily life: promoting the continuity of artists and enhancing their engagement with audiences, demystifying the creation processes and designing projects in partnership with the community. Fábrica das Ideias has the necessary tools to host artistic residencies: rooms, rehearsal and multi-purpose rooms, auditoriums, galleries and workshops (painting, woodworking, textiles and metals). These workspaces are also open to the local community. It is intended to assure working conditions for creators and local structures, encouraging their intersection with the artists and projects of the Artistic Residency and Support for Creation Program. The programming at Fábrica das Ideias is eclectic and generalist, seeking to intensify its appropriation by the community: it draws inspiration and intersects with local references, making the most of some moments´ more informal character, such as the presentation of projects in residency. In addition to occupying the more conventional spaces, such as auditoriums and galleries, the program extends to the Convés and Jardim 31 de agosto.

When, in 1921, Almada Negreiros wrote “A invenção de um dia claro”, speaking of things still and always current, of how we dress to be saved, or of how men point at instead of taking care of each other, he was far from imagining that in 2019 the fingers would point to five men evoking him, therefore taking care of him.
