APPLICATIONS NOW BEING ACCEPTED FOR LOS ANGELES COUNTY ARTISTS TO SPEND TWO MONTHS IN BRAZIL
The Cultural Exchange International Program of the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, the Sacatar Foundation in Pasadena, California, and the Instituto Sacatar in Itaparica, Brazil, are pleased to announce the upcoming selection process for the CEI/LADCA Fellowships to Sacatar. One to two Fellowships are awarded annually to artists in any discipline living in Los Angeles County.
The selected artist(s) receive(s) US$3,500.00 towards airfare and personal expenses and an additional US$2,000.00 to be deposited to the Sacatar Foundation, which provides a working studio, a private room with attached bath, full board and logistical support for the duration of the eight-week residency. During the residency, the artist is free to use the time and space as he or she sees fit, but we encourage artists to take full advantage of our beachside location on the island of Itaparica, across the bay from Salvador, Brazil, in the heart of the Brazilian state of Bahia, with its strong local culture deeply rooted in traditions that came out of Africa. The artist receives a portion of the financial award upon completion of a public presentation after the artist’s return to Los Angeles County.
THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS 15 OCTOBER 2012.
Applications must be sent electronically to LADCA@sacatar.org. There is an application fee of USD$35.00, payable through Paypal.
