A residence opens creative spaces for awareness of the “exodus” contemporary and will develop theoretical-practical reflections from an artistic point of view to think collectively about socially engaged and relational artistic practices at the same time. Registration costs between Rs. 65,00 (individual) e R$ 150,00 (groups of up to five people) and are open to artists, curators, researchers, educators, activists, among others.

One of the great attractions of the residency will be the inaugural class that counts with the participation of Dr.. Antonio Cuyler, founder of Curley Consulting LLG. and Director of the Master's Program and Associate Professor of Arts Administration at Florida State University (FSU).
