LAC – Laboratório de Actividades Criativas is a non-profit cultural association formed in 1995 and headquartered in the Old Chain of Lagos.
The building designed by Cottinelli Telmo and whose foundations are built on an old convent, is a place with history that is an integral part of the city’s history. Built for other purposes, it currently reveals an interesting dichotomy between prison / confinement VS space for creativity / freedom; by becoming a space of creation, it thus converted the molds of its existence, now the cells are a studio space for artists and their use and work contributes to the revitalization of the building, endowing it with a new history.
The association is a space for artistic residencies whose priority is to develop and expand the PRALAC – Art Residency Program at LAC, with the main objective of boosting and promoting artistic creation in the region and especially in the Southwest Algarve area.
