Sacatar invites artists to experience Bahia, Brazil!

The Insituto Sacatar is now receiving applications for eight-week residency sessions for creative professionals in 2019.  Artists of all nationalities, ages and disciplines may apply.

Selected artists may use the eight week residency as they wish, but we urge artists to take full advantage of the unqiue cultural characteristics of Bahia in a manner compatible with their own professional goals and artistic discipline. The eight-week Sacatar Fellowship begins with a week of orientation to the cultural geography of Bahia, with its entwined roots of African, European and native cultures. After that we work to assist artists in making any contacts they deem of interest to their pursuits.  At the end of the eight week residency, the artists often agree to open their studios to their collaborators, new-found friends, school groups and the wider local community. We also assist artists who wish to offer workshops or presentations during their stay.  We want artists to leave Bahia inspired and rejuvenated. 

Sacatar provides each artist a private room attached bath, a separate work studio, all meals (except Saturday evenings, Sundays and Brazilian holidays) and laundry service, in addition to logistical support to meet the artist's goals. 

All applications are managed digitally, through  Full details can be found at under APPLY.  There is an application fee of US$35,00. 

The DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS 30 JULY 2018. The 2019 Fellowships will be announced by November 2018.
