Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian

The Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian is a Portuguese philanthropic private institution whose statutory aims are in the fields of arts, charity, education and science. Created by a clause in Calouste Sarkis Gulbenkian’s will, the Foundation’s statutes were approved in 1956. The Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian partnered with Acme between 2008 – 2010 to provide residencies that were located in East London. Application and selection was undertaken directly by the Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian.
