SCAMBIO means exchange or trade in Italian. In this program Casa della Capra offers hospitality in exchange for art. In other words, selected participants are invited to stay with us and get the chance to explore and receive support at every step of their creative process, allowing them to make one or more pieces of work that that will remain as a legacy to the house. In the process they also have the opportunity to meet regular guests and local personalities, get exposure on our social media and physically exhibit work to the public.

The applicants are required to send a project proposal of a piece of work to be made and implemented in situ within 7 to 10 days. The proposal shall be written in maximum 2 A4 sized pages on PDF format containing a presentation letter, technique/medium, images, size and costs of the work. Curriculum Vitae, portfolio, website and social media contacts are also appreciated. See the complete Brochure and APPLY here.

Visual art: Mural, graphic design (for custom wallpaper project), painting and digital image, wood/linoleum printing.
