At the beginning of March, the Cultural Center Carpintarias de São Lázaro, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, was forced to suspend its entire program from April to September 2020, as well as were other institutions and cultural spaces of our country.
The program will be rescheduled, and presented partly together with the planned program of the last trimester of this year, and the remainder of it in the year of 2021, if the danger and constraints resulting from this pandemic do not persist.

We are convinced that this crisis will be over soon and successfully contained, in any way necessary, and with the discipline and resilience that characterizes the Human spirit, like it has been seen by the containment of the size of this situation in Portugal. This containment is the result of the effort of our health professionals, whom we sincerely give our sincere ‘thank you’, as well as of the collective intelligence and common sense that in difficult times distinguishes us as a community.

Based in this conviction, the Cultural Center Carpintarias de São Lázaro will be launching several, national and international, Open Calls for programs of artistic residency and knowledge sharing, in different areas of creation and their intersections, according to the spirit that has been always behind the project of "Carpintarias”.

These programs intend to open several ways of creation and development of projects, motivating the community of artists and creators to bring to light new ideas, with their eyes set on the future, and the perspective of presenting their work in Carpintarias de São Lázaro.

        Stay safe and healthy,
        Carpintarias de São Lázaro Team
