This residency program is geared toward visual artists, curators, writers, architects, cooks, environmentalists and academics who are interested in living, creating, or having an immersion experience in the Chapada Diamantina. The program is research-oriented, and it welcomes those who can establish their own working conditions.

Mirante Xique-Xique does not evaluate portfolios, but rather the relevance of the research proposal in relation to our values and goals [https://mirantexiquexique.org/sobre]. We also dialogue with pre-selected
candidates to guarantee that we will be able to welcome them. Only pre-selected candidates will be contacted by e-mail and WhatsApp between October 15 and 25, 2021. We accept applications in Portuguese, Spanish, and English. Candidates will be expected to communicate in one of these three languages during the residency.
