Centre of Transdisciplinary Arts

Centre of Transdisciplinary Arts – O Espaco do Tempo is a trans-disciplinary arts organisation that supports various Portuguese and foreign contemporary performing artists. 

Its headquarters are located in a convent the Convento da Saudacao (Convent of Salutation), a national monastery from the 15th century based in Montemor-o-Novo / Portugal, one of the poorest municipalities in Portugal. It considers that culture can have an important role in local development by opening new perspectives for local citizens, improving the quality of their daily life, facilitating diverse ways of looking and understanding the world and creating numerous opportunities for local employment and investments. O Espaco do Tempo takes an active role in working and interacting with the local community by working with schools and collaborating with local associations and other organizations.

The studios and residential areas that the Convent have constitute the basis for the development of the project and today there are around creative residences throughout the year, as well as numerous research projects and various events, all of them organised and based on the structural conditions we have to offer.
