There are different ways to participate in Urban Art in Lisbon.

1. Portfolio:

You can send us your portfolio, we'll keep your information and your contacts for reference in future projects. If there is any project in which we consider that you can be integrated, we will contact you.

2. Free painting spaces:
In Lisbon, there are several expositive spaces dedicated to urban art where any artist can work freely and others where the artists can apply by sending a proposal, presenting their portfolio/project.
(To paint in those spaces we just need you to inform us of your intervention so that we can go photograph it.)      
      - One of the spaces where you can intervene is the panels in Opens external link in new windowCalçada da Glória, which are one of the free painting spaces in Lisbon.       

      - Another place is the Opens external link in new windowStreet Art Park in Lumiar, a new free painting space in the city, the first created in Portugal, it is a multipurpose facility that integrates cultural, recreational and sports facilities. It is also possible to intervene in new locations, by presenting a project of recognized interest to the city, which will be analysed individually. If you want to choose this type of intervention, you have to follow these requirements:   

3. Submission of Spontaneous Proposal
It is possible to submit spontaneous proposals for the creation of urban art works in Lisbon, you'll have to send to our email your project, which must be of recognized interest to the City, it will be analysed on a case-by-case basis. The proposal must meet the following requirements:

Descriptive memory, mentioning:
    - Desired location (address, site plan, photography);
    - Intervention's Characterization (motifs, color scheme, materials);    
    - Timings for the art piece execution;
    - Small personal portfolio, with your most important artworks (or a link to a website, where they can be seen);
    - Model of the artwork to be;
    - Visual mock-up (photo montage), that can foresee how the final work will look like and it's surrounding context integration.

The Galeria de Arte Urbana of the Departamento de Património Cultural from CML will make a first evaluation of the proposal, in the aspects of artistic virtue and the projects integration in the urban landscape and the support itself. If the evaluation is positive, the DPC will follow the diligence needed with the other municipal entities (like Parish Council, Intervention Territorial Units, Commission of Appreciation of Projects in Municipal Heritage, among others) with competence in the matter. At the end of this process, and if all the feedbacks are positive, the DPC will issue an authorization that legitimates the intervention.
The costs involved to create the project are the responsibility of the production or the artist responsible for the intervention.
