Aiming to enhance and diversify the participation of interested individuals and collectives in activating the Vila Itororó, architectural complex composed of 11 buildings from the 1920s located in Bela Vista, the Goethe-Institut São Paulo opens this Call in order to select 8 projects to be developed during 2018.
Goethe na Vila is located on the ground floor of casa 8 in Vila Itororó. Each selected project will occupy the space for 30 days and must function autonomously.
There is no restriction regarding the support for or the format of the project: registration is open to any discipline or area in arts and culture. The call is directed at once to individual and collective initiatives.
We look for proposals that foster the space and commit themselves in the experimentation of its uses, in order to contribute to the programming of the Vila Itororó - Canteiro Aberto project. Goethe na Vila focuses on projects that, through culture, approach and question urban policies, center-periphery relation, gentrification process, that prize diversity and integration with the surrounding areas. Initiatives that are interested in singular narratives and how space influences urban dynamics and their social relations will also be taken into consideration.
As a result of the developed work, the selected candidates will be required to hold at least one open and free event that encourages public circulation in the space of Goethe na Vila.
