“...the Ateliê Fidalga molds itself in the collective experience, from the predecessors to the current members, in the tradition and the inquietude. A workshop using the knowledge apprenticeship horizontal model, with symmetric and equidistant rights and obligations. It is the art of generosity that is taught in this workshop, the exercise of discussion on the artistic creation and its deontology, the pleasure to be an artist and to reveal the truths and dreams the art promotes...”
Ateliê Fidalga is a place for exchanges and discussions, where artists from different backgrounds—philosophy, architecture, communication, literature, visual arts, music and theater—meet themselves to talk about their research in the field of art. It is a living organism, where each meeting, new issues are brought and placed on the agenda for reflection and analysis.
Projeto Fidalga, an extension of Ateliê Fidalga, emerged in 2012 as an independent space, non-profit, dedicated to experimental projects and art residencies in order to exchange ideas and experiences.
