The Instituto Sacatar solicits applications for group projects for its 2021 season. The group project should include two to five participating artists in any artistic discipline or in any multidisciplinary endeavor. The project may be for research, development or completion of plays, operas, musicals, multi-media installations, dance pieces, multidisciplinary spectacles, films, production design, or any other project that involves the integration of different disciplines or different artists.

The Sacatar Foundation brings together creative individuals from all nations, working in all disciplines, in order to promote increased intercultural understanding and global interconnectedness. Through its Instituto Sacatar–centered on the Island of Itaparica in Bahia, Brazil, supports residency fellowships for creative individuals of all nationalities and ages working within and across their respective creative disciplines. During their two-month residency period, Sacatar Fellows are encouraged and supported to utilize their creative practice to engage with the local Bahian communities in Salvador and Itaparica, resulting in rich intercultural collaborative exchanges that are shared through public programs locally and across the world. Since its inception in 2001, the Instituto Sacatar has hosted over 400 residency Fellows from sixty-six countries and has been involved in hundreds of community-based partnership programs and exchanges in Bahia and abroad.
