The Residency Program of the Goethe-Institut Salvador-Bahia,‭ ‬stands out in the general scope of the Goethe-Institut as the the first residency in the‭ ‘‬South‭’‬.‭ ‬The city is central in the South-South dialogues in geographic terms‭ ‬-‭ ‬as it’s part of the Black Atlantic‭ ‬-,‭ ‬historic‭ – ‬as it was the first capital of Brazil‭ – ‬and cultural‭ – ‬due to its Afro-Brazilian formation.

The thematically oriented residency program is aimed at established intellectuals,‭ ‬artists,‭ ‬scientists and writers of all areas,‭ ‬as well as at researchers and people who work in interdisciplinary fields.‭ ‬The general theme is the‭ ‘‬South‭’‬.‭

‬Up to four residents will be invited at a time,‭ ‬for periods of up to two months,‭ ‬therefore amounting to up to‭ ‬20‭ ‬residents per year,‭ ‬to develop their research pertaining to the‭ ‘‬South‭’ ‬at the locale,‭ ‬and to interact with the local cultural scene,‭ ‬the city and nature.‭ ‬There is no obligation for there to be production,‭ ‬and the result is open.‭ ‬Still,‭ ‬residents are required to hold a public presentation with available partners,‭ ‬if possible,‭ ‬twice during their stay.

The residence rooms are housed in the villa of the Goethe-Institut, which is surrounded by museums and theatres. With its studio theatre, the two galleries, the inner courtyard, the library and other (seminar) rooms, the institute offers ideal conditions for encounters, reflection, presentation and cultural production.
