JA.CA - Art and Tecnology Center

Francisca Caporali

The founder and artistic co-ordinator of JA.CA – Centro de Arte e Tecnologia, Francisca Caporali offers us a summary of this institution’s ten-year history, ever since the construction of its headquarters on “rented property”. Formed in 2010 as a project of international artistic residencies, three years later it became a non-profit association designed to promote and disseminate culture and art.

Located in the neighbourhood of Nova Lima, in Belo Horizonte (Brazil), its creative work revolves around two main axes: training and education in the arts through projects that presuppose residencies for artists and researchers, as well as meetings between artists, students and the surrounding community; and project management strategies based on public policies for independent artistic initiatives, which involve research into techniques for reusing materials and strengthening networks with other autonomous spaces.
