This edition of Interactivos? aims to host projects that propose experiments and solutions for the problems we face in dealing with water, such as scarcity and waste, drinking water for human and animal consumption, and water intended for other uses by different sectors of society: domestic, agricultural, industrial and recreational activities.

Five proposals will be selected to be developed during the 15-day period between October 29th and November 12th, at Nuvem – Rural Art and Technology Center. Each proposal will count with the support of up to 5 collaborators, who will also be selected by an open call. The call for collaborators will open after the proposal selection so that people interested in collaborating may choose which project to work on. Technical and theoretical orientation will be provided for all selected projects, and at the end of the residency each group will have to present a minimum viable product or prototype.
