Artist in Residence/Britain to Brazil
British Council Brazil and People’s Palace Projects are launching a year’s programme of three residencies for 3 UK based emerging artists in Brazil to take place between September 2017 and March 2018. The first 30-day residency for one UK based emerging artist takes place in September 2017 in association with the Indigenous Association of the Kuikuro People in Xingu (AIKAX). There will be nine artists from a range of cultural organisations from Rio de Janeiro on the same residency. The month will include a few days’ orientation in Rio de Janeiro (staying at Casa Rio, a residency centre for artists curated by People’s Palace Projects); all 10 artists will then travel to the Xingu for a 15 days residency in the Ipatse Village. The trip also includes a return to Rio de Janeiro at the end where there will be a public sharing of the collaborations. 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. The focus for the call will be to encourage artists interested in pursuing cultural projects with a social focus.
