The INSTITUTO SACATAR operates a residency program for creative individuals in all disciplines at its estate on the Island of Itaparica in the Bay of All Saints, across from the city of Salvador, Bahia, Brazil.
Sacatar is a member of Res Artis, the worldwide network of artist residencies, http://www.resartis.org, and of the Alliance of Artists Communities, http://www.artistcommunities.org.
The purpose of the Instituto Sacatar is:
• To provide artists a place to live and create
• To generate opportunities for artists to interact and collaborate with the local and regional community
• To enhance the visibility and cultural impact of the host city and nation
• To encourage art that returns us to where art began — to a wordless silence before all of creation
