Instituto Sacatar is an artist residency on the island of Itaparica near the Brazilian city of Salvador. Artists from all different walks of life apply for short-term fellowships to gain a spot in the small colony where they can use the Brazilian backdrop as inspiration to relax, and let the creative juices flow.
Five artists get to experience the bohemian artist colony with each round of fellowships. Between 10 and 20 fellowships are offered each year. Most last for eight weeks. An artist who gets that lucky acceptance letter gets round-trip flights included. When they arrive, they get their own studio and private bedroom. Nearly all of the meals are provided.
Sounds like paradise to you too?
