Collaborate // Stay with us

BARRACO #55 is a cultural centre and house at the same time. Staying with us means basically that you will become a member of our team for a period of time. Artist or not, there’s plenty to do in BARRACO #55. We work on particular projects and researches in the areas of a.o. art, sustainability, technology, music, urban planning and the pacification in which you can participate. If you want to apply for a residency please read the info and regulations>>> and fill in this form>>>

During your stay you can expect project support and/or (thesis)supervision by the Barraco #55 team, consisting of (local and international) researchers and artists that know the community and local actors well and a weekly breakfast meeting with our team and the other artists and researchers in residence where we discuss and present our plans, findings and developments. Also, there are weekly events and interventions in which you can participate/contribute. And last but not least, BARRACO #55 is an inspiring space where interesting people from the community and from all over the world meet, interact, share and co-create!

Not an artist or researcher but just interested in our work and the community? Come by and think what you can do, give, take, exchange! Are you an IT professional? Repair someone’s PC, you might get a traditional arroz e feijão in return. Are you a mucisian? Work on a new song in collaboration with a local MPB (Musica Popular Brasileira) musician. If you don’t have an idea yet of what you could contribute, we’ll also have our regular workshops and events such as Cinemoto and our monthly jamsessions in which we can always use a hand… If you want to stay in Barraco #55 for a shorter amount of time without participating in a particular project, you can stay in our dorm, double room or in a homestay project with one of our partnering families>>>
