Artist in Residency Programme

The Africa Centre, together with artist in residency programmes in Australia, Brazil, Ethiopia, Finland, the Netherlands, Turkey and the United States of America have partnered to launch a new Artist in Residency Programme (AIR). The programme has been conceived to support artists from Africa who are provocative, innovative, relevant and highly engaged with both social issues and their art forms.

AIR manifests through existing artist-in-residency partnerships around the world that are prepared to select an artist, from a short list provided by the Africa Centre, for one of their 2011 or 2012 residencies. The costs of the residency and roundtrip airfare are included in each residency award made as part of this programme.

Application deadline is 1 June 2011.
