Instituto Inclusartiz’s Residency Programmes
The Residency Programmes of Instituto Inclusartiz has the purpose of promoting cultural exchange amongst Brazil and other countries to encourage collaborations between institutions, organisations and different cultural agents.
Instituto Inclusartiz currently offers artistic residencies in Rio de Janeiro and London, in partnership with Delfina Foundation.
During the artistic residencies that take place in Rio de Janeiro, Instituto Inclusartiz welcomes artists, curators or international scholars who want to research different aspects of the country, partake in projects with the local artistic community, and develop works and collaborations within Brazil. Starting in 22020, the artistic residencies in Rio de Janeiro will also welcome artists outside of the Rio – São Paulo axis who wish to deepen their researches, establish collaborations and produce new works.
Brazilian artists can benefit from Instituto Inclusartiz partnership with Delfina Foundation, which offers them a 3-month residency in London for the main purpose of contributing to an ongoing presence of Brazilian artists on a global platform, as well as, positioning local artistic practices in different contexts and perspectives.

The Residency Programme in London in collaboration with Delfina Foundation
Instituto Inclusartiz in partnership with Delfina Foundation annually offers a 3-month residency in London to a Brazilian artist with the main purpose of contributing to an ongoing presence of Brazilian artists on a global platform, as well as, positioning local artistic practices in different contexts and perspectives.
Founded in 2007, the Delfina Foundation is a London-based non-profit dedicated to facilitating artistic exchange and developing creative practice through residencies, exhibitions and public programming. The foundation provides a platform for its residents to reflect on their practices, position their work within relevant global discourses, develop artistic researches and network colleagues.
Forging international collaborations between artists, curators, communities and institutions are made possible thanks to the Delfina Foundation’s extensive local and international network. The artists-in-residence receive individual assistance and curatorial mentoring, participate in group discussions with the other residents, and have studio visits with independent and institutional curators.
Back in 2018, the application process for residencies was only for Rio de Janeiro-based artists who had been nominated by local and international curators. In 2019, the application process for residencies focused on artists from the Northeast Region of Brazil who had also been nominated by local and international curators. In 2020, we have proposed an open call for artists from the Northern Region of Brazil. The selected artist this year was Manauara Clandestina.
Former residents include Ana Lira, Maxwell Alexandre and Vivian Caccuri.
