Tell stories, transmit messages and communicate globally. This are the 3 key elements of the 3rd edition of 180 Creative Camp, themed ‘The Power of Storytelling’.
It is a challenge for 180 Creative Camp to create history in Abrantes, telling at the same time the story of the town’s creative invasion of creators from different countries and artistic areas.
After introducing the ‘Think Big’ theme in 2012, 180 Creative Camp returns to the peaceful town of Abrantes to keep promoting and boosting creative collaborations in media arts.
We are looking for national or international creators who will have access to all activities and will have meals and accommodation assured. We will announce the winners on June 11th, 2014. To apply, fill out this form until June 8th.
180 Creative Camp will feature lots of activities and many will be open to the public – concerts, open air film theater and talks. Stay tuned because very soon we’ll announce the detailed program.

The name derives from latin ‘Aurantes’ due to the amount of gold that was taken from the river sand. Check it on the map.
