For Dutch artists: Call for cultural programme Olympic Games in Brazil
The Dutch Cultural Funds, DutchCulture and the cultural secretary of the Municipality of Rio de Janeiro are organising a Dutch cultural programme before the Olympic Games of 2016 in Brazil.
During the programme new collaborations between 10 artists from The Netherlands and 10 artists from Rio de Janeiro will be developed. The project is locally embedded by working with several cultural festivals and institutions in Rio de Janeiro, who are connected to the state-secretary of culture of the municipality of Rio de Janeiro. The project consists of creating new works and will include several presentations during the project and a large-scale presentation during the final day of the project.
Dutch Performing Arts is looking for innovative 'mid-career' performing artists, who already have a strong convincing portfolio, in the fields of music, dance and theatre. You can apply by sending a resume, a short motivation (max. 200 words) and a brief description of an idea that you would like to develop with an artist from Rio De Janeiro to Anja Krans (firstname.lastname@example.org). You can apply until March 21.
Nine artists, three from each discipline, will be preselected and presented to the partners in Brazil. The suggested candidates will be discussed between the programme-team in The Netherlands
and the programme-team in Brazil to find the best connection between the artists that will lead to the most fruitful cultural collaboration between the two countries. Finally, from each discipline one artist will be selected to participate in the programme. The organisation from Brazilian side will be essentially done by TEMPO Festival as the main organising body from Rio de Janeiro. TEMPO will work in close collaboration with other cultural festivals and/or cultural organisations in Rio de Janeiro to cover all the cultural disciplines.
The programme takes place in the run-up to the Olympics, from 11-31 July, and you will be staying in Rio for that whole period. So make sure before you apply that your calender is free for that period. The selected artists are spread across three different residencies in the same area, Humaita. All artists have their own bedroom and bathroom, but some share a spacious living room and kitchen. There are regular meetings where the artists come together to discuss progress. Travel and accommodation will be compensated. There's also a per diem for food- and beverages. Finally, the artists receive a fee of 2,000 euros.
Young performing artists who graduated recently can't apply for this programme. The programme is designed for individual performing artists, so duos or groups can't apply as well.
