A space and time to do creative work together
August 31 - September 9, 2016
A community of artists
MakersCollective was an 8 day retreat in rural Portugal for a small group of artists and musicians. We lived, ate, worked, and laughed together as we spent the week creating new work, learning from one another through skill shares, exploring the village and relaxing in nature. It was a chance for us to create an experience that goes beyond a vacation; a chance to re-balance, check in with what’s important, and reconnect to our source of creativity.
Go for walks in the surrounding countryside, swim in the river, and get plenty of Vitamin D.
Learn from each other, share your knowledge and passions.
Work on a personal project, collaborate on a group piece, try out new ideas.
Deepen your friendships, share meaningful experiences,
meet the locals, become part of the village.
