I, Kate Smith, founder of Curiosa Productions, am applying for DBACE support to launch two projects in Góis, Portugal in 2017, built around participatory art making and collaboration. The first, Curiosa Connect, is an outreach project to communities in and surrounding Góis, offering devised music-making workshops. The second project, Other Lands, Other Sounds, is a guided cross-arts residency for musicians and visual artists. Organized in collaboration with local arts organization, Raiz Vanguarda, these projects will set the groundwork for being combined into Curiosa Intensive, a socially-engaged cross-arts educational residency offered in August 2018 during the Góis Arts Festival.
