Cycle of JA.CA residencies
In 2022, JA.CA – Centro de Arte e Tecnologia started to occupy a new site in Jardim Canada, in Belo Horizonte. Now the institution invites artists and collectives to develop proposals and exercises of political, social and spatial imagination for the new lot, which take into account issues such as its topography, location, surroundings and neighborhood. From experiments, from fictions, temporary architectural/landscape interventions or even other strategies, we propose a space for reflection on models and types of occupation that question and enhance forms of interaction with the landscape and the neighborhood community.
For this, registrations are open for a new cycle of residencies, lasting
60 days (March 6 to May 6, 2023) and the participation of two artists. Each selected person will receive a grant for a cost allowance in the total amount of R$4000 and an amount of up to R$2500 to be applied exclusively to the production of the proposed project. Artists who do not reside in Belo Horizonte will receive assistance with expenses for their journey from their city of origin to Belo Horizonte and will stay at JA.CA throughout the period of their residency.
Applications are open until December 17, 2022. Read the full JA.CA announcement to learn more.
