The Gatherings can run concurrently or separate from our Artists-in-Residence programming. Each of our Gatherings is curated by one of our artists/scholars-in residence, an impressive group of internationally-known thinkers and makers.  For ten days, our art and culture-curious travelers enjoy a rich and unusual glimpse into a region of Southern Italy often unseen by tourists — through the eyes and assignments of their curator.

From immersive and slow excursions into the Parco Nazionale del Cilento, Vallo di Diano, and Alburni, and the surrounding region, to meditative sojourns in the southern Italian sun, to evenings of inspiring presentations and performances by our artists/scholars-in-residence, BACAS Gatherings are memorable, life-changing experiences for our guests.
