Program Description:

Casa na Ilha is a space where to develop, improve and curate personal and group projects in an interdisciplinary ambience, nurturing for different views opinions and expertise. The residency program promotes the development of projects in all stages, from conception of the idea to the presentation of the same.

Artists work on a self-directed residency: you will have uninterrupted, self-directed work time. We will not pressure you to deliver finished work; you can focus solely on research and development of ideas.
However, during your stay there will be a tutor on location 24/7 to discuss ideas, projects and progress of work during the duration of the residency time, respecting artists pace and direction. We do not provide a set program or itinerary for artists to follow, sessions and tutor advice and support will be approached personally case by case around artists self directed practices. Tutor will give you guidance as well as help make the necessary contacts, approaches and arrangements with different parties the project requires.

Each sessions hosts 4 – 6 artists at the same time, from different disciplines, giving the opportunity to artists in residency to gain new ideas and insights that can be applied to creative exploration and the development of their work through peer interaction and discussion groups. Common spaces will be conceived to promote not only collaboration between the artists, but to empower ideas between different participants and interdisciplinary learning. Casa na Ilha embraces the role of being an active platform of thinking, discussion, production and sharing trough daily interactions open to share and exchange ideas and perspectives among participants.
Casa na Ilha gathers individuals with different expertise, sensibilitites, skills and backgrounds committed to contribute to the enrichment of intellectual and artistic circles with their professional collaborations and public interactions, also carrying a strong belief in the importance of building a community that shares and grows.
