Buinho is a cultural association founded in the historic Village of Messejana, in 2015. It started in 2014 as an informal group of young people concerned with social innovation and youth empowerment through entrepreneurship and product design.
Buinho intersects traditional knowledge about endogenous materials and craftsmanship, with technology and design driven processes. Embedded in the local values, culture and lifestyle of Alentejo, Buinho is both a place to stay and a place to play. It is a project accelerator through practice. A place designed to develop problem solving skills and innovative solutions that address societal needs.
The motivations of Buinho are:- To contribute to decrease the gap of technological access and experimentation opportunities that exist between the children and young people living in urban and rural areas.- To contribute to the enhancement of the economic and social environment of the village.- To raise the profile of the Village of Messejana.- To be a reference in project sustainability in a rural context.

The residence will gather a community of creative individuals, as well as end-users, that will participate and provide mentorship to the projects of the participants. Focused in bridging rural craftsmanship and endogenous materials to technology and science, the residence will give the opportunity for young people to work together under the theme “design for all” and explore their entrepreneurial capabilities.With its Young Rural Makers youth exchange, Buinho intends to highlight cross-disciplinary strategies to explore new concepts, and through creative work in teams to strengthen the values of solidarity and to discover new cultures.
