PADA has developed a long term studio programme to support artists residing in Lisbon and the local area.

This group of artists reflects a diverse range of artistic practices and methodologies as well as backgrounds and nationalities.

These artists participate in various activities at PADA, contributing to the program as well as interacting with visiting artists and curators, creating a dynamic work environment that encourages collaborative, experimental and participatory processes. Find out more about our studio spaces here.
