The Instituto operates a residency program for artists at its estate, the Quinta Pitanga, on the Island of Itaparica in the Bay of All Saints, across from the city of Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. Residencies last from six to twelve weeks, with most scheduled for eight weeks. Specifically, a Fellowship to Sacatar provides:Reimbursement for roundtrip airfare between the artist’s closest international airport and Salvador, Bahia, Brazil, a private bedroom with attached bath, a separate studio, all meals (except on Saturday night, all day Sunday and holidays).The Fellowships do not include a stipend. Artists are responsible for incidental expenses and all working materials. Once on the island, artists are responsible for their local transportation, although we meet artists at the airport on the first day of the residency session to take them the first time to our island estate.
