British Council Brazil and People’s Palace Projects are offering a year’s programme of three residencies for UK based emerging artists in Brazil, produced by Casa Rio (PPP do Brasil’s artist residency space, Rio de Janeiro) to take place between September 2017 and April 2018.
Applications for the second residency are now open. Deadline 28th August 2017.
The focus for the call is to encourage artists interested in pursuing cultural projects with a social focus.
Artists from all artistic disciplines (installation, video art, sculpture, electronic music, painting, drawing, performance, photography, digital art etc.) are invited to send a short proposal (see below for further details).
Participating artists are expected to be open to working with others. Casa Rio’s team will introduce the selected artist to a range of cultural organisations in Rio de Janeiro in order to help develop the project he/she aims to create during the residency. At the end of the month there will be a public sharing of the result of the month’s work and the collaborations.
The second 30-day residency for one UK based emerging artist takes place in November 2017 at Casa Rio, a residency centre for artists in Rio de Janeiro curated by PPP do Brasil.
The offer to the artist will include: economy flight London/Rio/London; airport transfers; insurance; accommodation; per diems; artists fee based on UK industry guidelines for artistic residencies; a small budget for materials; a local producer/translator to support their project; a local team setting up and monitoring the residency with appropriate local partners if needed; local transport costs; incidental costs appropriate to the residency (e.g. vaccinations, etc).
There will be one further call for a residency opportunity in the North East of Brazil later in the year. We intend to open this call in October 2017. If you would be interested in receiving details of this call when it opens, please add your name to our mailing list here: firstname.lastname@example.org
The application for the second residency, in Rio de Janeiro, should be completed by 28th August.
