Prizes and Grants

SP-Arte continuously seeks to create and reinforce bonds that unite different players from the arts circuit. As such, it fosters actions earmarked for artists, curators, institutions and galleries. They are initiatives that leverage continued education opportunities through residency grants abroad, offered to Brazilian creators, and financial support for the development of creative projects.
