INTERESTED IN DIGITAL CULTURE & LOVE BRAZIL?
2 CREATIVE PLACEMENTS TO SPEND 6 MONTHS IN BRAZIL
APPLICATION DEADLINE: 24 February 2006
Rich Mix and the Arts Council, England, with Cybersalon, are offering an
opportunity for two individuals interested in digital culture to go to
Brazil for a period of 6 months, from June 2006. The placements will let
artists research the creative opportunities offered at Brazil's 'Pontos
de Cultura' (Cultural Points) and to suggest their own research focuses.
The Cultural Points make up the Brazilian Ministry of Culture's cultural
network programme known as 'Cultura Viva'. The artists will be attached
to the Institute of Information Technology Research (IPTI) in Sao Paolo
who will act as hosts during their residencies.
'Cultura Viva' (Living Culture) was set up by celebrated musician
Gilberto Gil in his role as Brazilian Minister for Culture. The Cultural
Points consist of connecting up existing cultural organisations all over
Brazil, ranging from film clubs and samba schools to native American
groups documenting their culture. Under 'Cultura Viva', these
communities have been provided with multimedia studios configured with
Free and Open Source Software tools and supported with regional
workshops enabling them to produce digital content and to communicate
with other groups across Brazil and beyond. Currently there are over 300
Cultural Points, and there will be 600 of them by the end of this year.
