The São João Residency is an independent rural residency focused on intensive development of work, processes and experiences, as well as on the establishment of partnerships between residents. ​

Local Information

The residency is located in a historic 19th century estate, near the city of São José do Vale do Rio Preto, in the countryside of Rio de Janeiro (3 hours drive from Rio). It is open for individuals and collectives acting in different areas and medias. Besides the wide common area in the main house and plenty of outdoor spaces, residents have at their disposal individual and collective studios to develop personal work and research, as well as sound equipment and musical instruments. We organize collective activities, such as workshops, presentations in various formats and open talks, both in the immediate context of the residency and in outside events. We also publish contents related to the residency through Deep editions.
