Citydwellers has been running a concept store and a textile studio, located in a fancy shoppingmall in the city centre of Eindhoven, for five years. A great opportunity to meet interesting entrepeneurs and customers, to explore new territories and to collaborate. Upcoming designers and interns are given the opportunity to sell their fashion, food and lifestyle products in a ‘learn as you go’ kind of manner.

Mentorship and collaboration are the main aspects in the development of the Citydwellers 2.0 project. The great, natural environment of Central Portugal will be the home of nomad workers, who are welcome to temporarily live and work at Casa Poiares.

Enjoy the tranquility of working in the countryside, yet being connected. The cultural heritage of the historic area will provide inspiration and interactions with the friendly local community will provide interesting storytelling. Affordable public transportation connects the villages with  the major cities.
