CONTRAPROVA is a non-profit association whose mission is to contribute to the production, promotion and distribution of Portuguese contemporary printmaking. Having established a fully equipped workshop devoted to printmaking, CONTRAPROVA aims to be a catalyst for creative production in Lisbon in the areas of printmaking, analogue printing and illustration; a platform for communication, pedagogy and artistic mobility.
CONTRAPROVA was created in 2008 in an attempt to address the lack of a printmaking studio, easily accessible and without limitations of schedule; the studio currently promotes editorial projects and educational activities for diversely specialized publics, working so printmaking can again be an active voice in the field of cultural activities in Portugal.
