Season ART AND MAGIC at Terra UNA Ecovillage.
Description of the residency program
The Collective Season is a way to bring together a number of artists over the same period of time to make the most out of the residence at Terra UNA. Through our experience the exchange between the artists and the follow up of the curators and facilitators is one of the main factors that make the artistic production of the artist in a month in the residence equivalent to 6 months up to one year of production in the usual conditions with the dispersions of the city and everyday life.

The artists are lodged in double or triple rooms in the Cristália and Beija-Flor houses which are very close to the community center where there is the kitchen, dining hall and hall where the courses take place. There is an ecovillage routine that includes meals, sharings, meditations, group work, activities for children, workshops and hiking. Each artist is integrated into the activities of the ecovillage according to their interests and creates their own dynamics of work. We also have a schedule of the season that includes the follow-up of the projects and collective actions proposed by the participants and facilitators.

Disciplines, work equipment, and assistance

To apply just answer the form on

The Artistic Residence in TERRA UNA functions in a coworking mode. Where each artist finances their own stay. All artistic fields are accepted. We do not make a selection, but a validation of the projects. The artist responds to a questionnaire that includes his proposal, biography, and his/her particular needs.

The Terra UNA team evaluates the feasibility and adequacy of the proposal to the context of the ecovillage and talks with each subscriber to make sure that we have conditions to welcome his/her proposal.

(This may take a while, be patience :)

Yes, we value who inscribes first, but the most important is the proposal's suitability to the ecovillage. Once the project is validated, the artist makes a first deposit and combines the remaining form of payment.
