How does the Collective Residence Season work?
The Collective Season is a way to gather around a certain number of artist in the same period, to grant the most effective residence in Terra UNA. In our 10 years experience, the exchange between artists with the curators' and facilitators' follow-ups is one of the main factors that make artistic work in 1 month of residency correspond to 6 months up to one year of production in studio usual conditions with the dispersions of the city and everyday life.
Artists are accommodated in private or shared rooms in Cristália and Beija-Flor houses, pretty near to community center where kitchen, dining room, housing, and main room are and also where workshops are ministrated. We follow an ecovillage everyday routine that include meals, sharing, meditations, group work, activities for children, workshops and hikings/trekkings. Every single artist join ecovillages activities in order of his/hers interests and creates his/her own work dynamic. We have a specific agenda for the Collective Season that includes the projects follow-ups and collective happenings proposed by participants and facilitators
The Artistic Residence in TERRA UNA functions in a coworking mode. Where each artist finances their own stay.
All artistic fields are accepted. We do not make a selection, but a validation of the projects. The artist responds to a questionnaire that includes his proposal, biography and his/hers particular needs.
The Terra UNA team evaluates the feasibility and adequacy of the proposal to the context of the ecovillage and talks with each subscriber to make sure that we have conditions to welcome his/her proposal.
