The ARTErra is a project hosting and encouraging interdisciplinary artistic creation trough artistic residencies, result of a private effort open to partnerships and communication with other entities. Set in a small countryside village of Portugal, it is a place with rural aspects and extremely quiet. The enjoyment and the inclusion of the community are the main goals of this project, so we develop proposals of activities that could contribute to these objectives, in the form of promote or co-produce performances, workshops, informal presentations of ongoing projects, etc.
The artist finds in ARTERRA a house with a series of facilities,and a creation of a yard, where there are several spaces for the creation and development of an artistic work, and the possibility of introduction of the developed to the public. n this space we will seek to provide artists and projects all the conditions for the development of the creative process. This space is intended for professionals from different artistic areas, groups or independent creators, Portuguese and foreign.
You can also receive exceptional training projects for the general public and for children
Groups or individuals are generally funded for their accommodation, food and travel and will be expected to allow public access to the work that's being undertaken. This will often be in the form of an informal Open Session performance, but may also be a more formal invitation to participate in an upcoming Aldeburgh Festival or concert series. Although residency budgets are not normally able to provide for artist fees, extra funds may occasionally be available if this performance is likely to attract a significant paying audience. The residency programme is always oversubscribed. It is intended for the development of specific creative projects and therefore not meant simply to provide a funded rehearsal period. Our criteria for selecting residencies are:
- It's a creative project which will really benefit from an Aldeburgh Residency. Risky is good.
- It has at least some element which is new, whether in terms of music, collaborations or processes.
- It involves musicians and artists whom we would like to experience the place, who will embrace the Aldeburgh ethos of performing, creating and sharing, and who are likely to contribute to other aspects of Aldeburgh Music's work either during the residency or in the future.
