Vila Sul Residency
This thematically oriented residency program is aimed at established intellectuals, artists, scientists, and writers working in all areas, as well as at researchers and people who work in interdisciplinary fields. The general theme is the South.
Starting from this focus on the South, our residents for the first two years (2016 through 2017) will be part of the intercontinental project Episódios do Sul (Episodes of the South) developed in South America.
Up to four residents will be invited at a time, for periods of up to two months, therefore amounting to up to 20 residents per year, to develop their research pertaining to the ‘South’ in Salvador da Bahia, and to interact with the local cultural scene, the city, and nature. There is no obligation for there to be production, and the result is open. Still, residents are required to hold a public presentation with available partners, if possible, twice during their stay.
