CAPACETE will launch a new one-year program in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, for up to 12 international participants dedicated to research and practice in the arts and critical thought. It will start its first edition in March 2015.
12 participants will be selected for the program. The aim is to reserve four positions for Brazilians, four for South Americans, and four for the rest of the world. The duration of the program is ten months, from the 1st of March to the 20th of December, with a one-month break in July.
The program is designed as a fluid and adaptive platform of exchange between the participants and the lecturers and advisors. The program will offer nine seminars given by nine lecturers from different backgrounds. Seminars will extend from three days to up to five days duration. Each lecturer will also do a public talk open to the main public. In addition, different talks, presentations and events will be organized throughout the year with other guest lecturers.
One of the ambitions of our program is to have each yearly program culminate in a collective project, designed by the participants, one that can take on any number of forms (presentation, performance, publication, exhibition, seminar etc.).
Participants are also encouraged to develop individual projects. Use of the facilities of CAPACETE resort office and exhibition space and other infrastructure will be made available for such projects, and contact with local institutions and agents will also be facilitated. The program will organize trips to different sites of interests in accordance with the selected group of participants (walks, seminars in different sites); and for this, will collaborate with similar organizations in Brazil and South America.
Studio visits with local and visiting professionals, as well as visits to the studios of local artists will also be organized. It is important to note that CAPACETE is not a studio-based program. Work facilities are available and can be organized on a case-by-case basis, but designated workspaces are not automatically provided for each participant.
