CasaDuna - centro de arte, pesquisa e memória de Atafona

General information

Brief description of residency program

CasaDuna - Centro de Arte, Pesquisa e Memória de Atafona is an artistic residency and cultural center that temporarily is based on Atafona beach, municipality of São João da Barra, north coast of Rio de Janeiro. The city is undergoing an intense process of maritime erosion. This process has been intensified since the 70´s. The geological movement that exists here is a natural phenomenon of silting. It is, however, getting stronger by human action in the river that crosses the states of Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Minas Gerais.
We are a laboratory of aesthetic and sociocultural research, with its main focus in the fields of Contemporary Philosophy and Arts. Constantly seeking autonomous and institutional partnerships for collaboration and concealment of other socio-cultural projects, we offer a space for the production of individual and collective actions.
