Works are also shown in an exhibition on site and on Tododomingo: Sunday meetings where the artists can present his or her research in progress and discuss plans. The goal of these meetings is to create weekly moments for dialogues and exchange of knowledge between the curators, residents, artists, professionals of cultural areas and public.
Casa das Caldeiras is situated in the district of Agua Branca, the Western zone of the city of Sao Paulo, not so far from the historical centre. Currently the city is expanding towards the south, so the site is not directly situated in an area of expansion. However, Agua Branca is next to the district of Lapa, which is a pleasant residential zone, traditionally an Italian district. Moreover the surrounding infrastructure and the access to Casa das Caldeiras are very good with many expressways in the vicinity.
