Prainha Residência Artística

Prainha Residência Artística

Beachfront Program


Prainha artists residency is located right in front of the best beach in the southern state coast. The spot is particulary attractive to surfers. The area is quite well populated as the city is around 480 years old, so it is not a deserted or isolated beach. It is a city beach, but it is a very calm place in weekdays. During weekends many tourists come to enjoy the city. Their program normally lasts one month. The main purpose is to provide a comfortable place for artists to spend some time, socialize, lear new cultures, exchange and relax in an artistic atmosphere. The artists will have a private bedroom and share a big house with other artists and the residency curator.


The residency organizers hope the residents will exercise they art production, learn new cultures, dialog with other guests and locals, travel a bit around, visit big city of São Paulo (just 100km away), have a great time at the beach, get feedback from your work, chat about art strategies and make new friends.
