LABxS 2018 Residency Programme (Brazil)

LABORATÓRIO SANTISTA announces an open call to select artists, researchers, creators and inventors for short term artistic residencies hosted at its headquarters.

Are eligible to apply: Artists; researchers; creators; inventors; people interested in being part of a collaborative process of learning, unlearning, and creation, as well as in exchanging knowledge and opening up to creative experimentations with art and life.

The open call is directed towards both Brazilians and non-Brazilians with a special focus on people who identify as belonging to the Global South. The term South is not understood here as strictly geographical, therefore there are no restrictions as to country of origin. In this open call we understand South as a cultural, geopolitical, and identity based recognition of voices, territories, and bodies who have been historically silenced, explored, oppressed, colonized and/or subjugated.

What is covered:

  • Funds for round trip travel;

  • Daily spending money: BRL 90.00;

  • Funds for production and materials: up to BRL 500.00;

  • Stipend for residents: total of BRL 1,000.00;

  • Assistance with travel logistics and temporary housing;

  • A shared work and creation space, equipped with power, internet connection, tables and chairs;

  • Access to Laboratório Santista’s (LABxS) entire infrastructure: locker rooms, an urban permaculture lab, a kitchen, a multipurpose room, a classroom, housing, storage, a recreational area, and everything else still to be invented;

  • Opportunity to develop a social-artistic project in the Baixada Santista area;

  • Languages: Portuguese, English, and Spanish.

Deadline: 17 June 2018
