Cultivamos Cultura hosts resident creators for periods up to 4 months. During the residency, creators are encouraged to engage in activities with local communities, including schools. It is expected that a record of the activities pursued during the residency will remain in our archives.
Cultivamos Cultura encourages unusual outcomes from residencies, namely through performances, open lectures, informal round tables or exhibitions, as well as interactions with the local community. Three types of residencies are currently being conducted: Production residencies; special residencies; and knowledge residencies. Please see the guidelines for applying for a residency and send in the form.
Cultivamos Cultura curates and produces art exhibitions related to new media and experimental art practices. The objective of these exhibitions is to show the diversity of strategies within contemporary art creation, as well as the outcome of art residencies.
Cultivamos Cultura produces exhibitions at our home location, as well as in national and international venues. See examples of our past art exhibitions, such as Emergências2012, produced for Guimaraes 2012 European Capital of Culture, or Sul-Sol, our end of the year exhibition in the town of Odemira.
See more past examples in /HARVESTED and future examples in /SEEDS.
Cultivamos Cultura has a commitment to share information and knowledge generated through its activities. Such dissemination of knowledge and experiences is achieved through different strategies. Workshops led by international experts in specific fields have been organized.
Cultivamos Cultura has also organized lectures and symposia dedicated to specific themes related to creative creation. In addition, an international summer school is organized annually. Several publications, both printed and on-line are regularly edited. This year we are also starting internships for art studends to come and work with our residents.
