CULTURAL PARADISE

Casadasartes opens its doors for projects of cinema, theater, circus, dance, visual arts, literature, perfomance, gastronomy and any discipline of physical, mental or spiritual development; at any stage (research, production, finalization, presentation, training) to be developed in our space in Embu das Artes, São Paulo, Brazil.

Creators, directors, filmmakers, authors, choreographers, photographers, actors, dancers, acrobats, musicians, visual artists, critics, thinkers, researchers and teachers of any country, age, gender or race, are invited to submit their projects, as well as to participate in the projects already selected.

The selection will prioritize the quality, originality, audacity and especially the artistic development that the project means for the creator.

We will also take into account the genuine intention of bartering.

Everybody, filmmakers, collaborators and Casadasartes, participate in the projects based on exchange.

How do I send a project?
The idea is that artists are free to describe their projects.
It is recommended however, a clear and brief mail that allows us to visualize what you would do here and why.
Let us know if you come alone, or with your team.
Do not forget to tell us what you would like to offer us in return.

What does Casadasartes offer me if my project is selected?
Casadasartes offers the space with water, gas, electricity, landline, internet and if there are, vegetable from and fruits from the garden. We do not offer food, transportation, or the expenses of the project.

Can I go to Casadasartes to think, write or develop a project?
Yes. Send us the project you want to work on. Do not forget to tell us what you would contribute to the house during the time you are here.

I work with aereals. Can I hang ropes, trapezes, etc?

Yes, the grill is specially designed for that.

Do you accept projects that dialogue with nature, such as houses in trees, bio-construction, permaculture?
Yes! Any dialogue with nature is welcome.

How can I make a film in the house?
We have a living room of 200 m2 with 10 meters high, forest and pool.
Imagine!

Can existing projects be sent or should they be made especially for the call?
Both. We like as much the idea of helping to realize existing projects as to inspire new artistic adventures. Just be sure, if you send us an existing project, to send only what we ask for. We do not want to read millions of attachments!
