Sertão Negro launches call for artist residencies supported by Open Society Foundations

Posted by:
Applications are open until December 15 for the 2024 Artist Residency Program at Sertão Negro Studio and School of Arts, a space run by visual artist Dalton Paula, one of those selected for the 2023 edition of the Open Society Foundations' Soros Arts Fellowship.

The program aims to create a dialogue between the visual arts, the environment and traditional knowledge. This proposal offers five places (one international, two national and two local) and is scheduled to take place between May and September 2024 in both national and international modalities, will last four weeks, the first of which will be spent in a quilombo in the state of Goiás and three weeks at Sertão Negro, located in the Shangri-la neighborhood, in the northern region of Goiânia, capital of the Goiás State.

The local modality also includes this experience in the quilombola community, but lasts 12 months and is aimed at artists or people living in Goiás. For this, Sertão Negro provides structure, resources and guidance to enable training and improvement in contemporary art. Scheduled to begin in May 2024, this type of residency offers a monthly grant of two thousand reais.

By encouraging the local economy, community-based tourism and, above all, valuing traditional knowledge, this artistic residency program seeks to stimulate connections between quilombola communities (daily life and the relationship with the land, their cultural and religious expressions) and artists in their research processes, practice and artistic poetics in the most diverse media, pictorial components and languages.

During the three weeks at the Sertão Negro Studio and School of Arts, located in Goiânia/GO, the resident artists (national and international) have access to accommodation in individual chalets and food; and receive a subsidy of 1500 dollars plus the cost of airfare.

Sertão Negro began this residency program in 2022 with Carla Santana, an artist from Rio de Janeiro; then, in partnership with the São Paulo Biennial Foundation, it welcomed artists M'barek Bouhchichi (Morocco), Juliana dos Santos (SP), Mario Lopes (RJ/Munich) and Gaama Gloria "MaMa G" Simms (Jamaica), participants in the 35th São Paulo Biennial - choreographies of the impossible.
