1 to 6 months duration
Did you know that throughout the year Kaaysa is open to artists of all disciplines and writers, who simply want to spend time at Kaaysa doing research, projects, writing, revising a book or a script, painting, reading, recording a song, etc..?
How it works?
KAAYSÁ OPEN is a program in which the artist /writer chooses the date and duration of his residency. In this program there is no theme, no prior program by Kaaysá coordination. The artist in residency will take care of his/her own activities, projects, exchanges, production and research in loco.
This specific open call is addressed to a limited number of people who wish to spend a minimum period of 1 and a maximum of 6 months at Kaaysá, subject to selection.
Kaaysá is situated in a 5,000 square meter area in the middle of the Atlantic forest, and has enough space to accommodate both “resident” artists and artists participating in other programs such as Kaaysá Residency, Kaaysá Group and Kaaysá Experience (see our website for a description of Kaaysá’s different programs), it is a 10 minute walk to the trail that leads to the beautiful waterfalls of Ribeirao Itu, and a 15 minute walk to the Boicucanga beach and midtown. More than 500 multidisciplinary artists have already participated in Kaaysá’s programs.
