HOW, WHY AND WHEN?
The residency spaces are also places of co-creation and of encounters aimed at active citizenship – with a focus on human rights and the environment.
The occupations take place through specific partnerships with artists, professionals from various creative sectors, and governmental and non-governmental institutions. The goal is to remain in a collaborative network.
To access the space it is necessary to send the project to the specific directorate that integrates it case by case to compose its programming.
The association has strong ties with Brazil and other Portuguese-speaking countries, but is open to all nationalities and has a network of international exchanges in Latin America, Europe, the United States, and Africa.
Our association also has experienced experts (curatorial/production/management) who can support artists in their research if needed.
The space holds the following activities:
- multidisciplinary creative residencies;
- shows and exhibitions;meetings and trainings;
- workshops in several areas;
