The Africa Centre: Artists in Residency Applications

The Africa Centre was established in 2005 as an international centre for creativity, artistic excellence and intellectual engagement. Based in Cape Town, South Africa, the Africa Centre's social innovations extend across the African continent. The Centre is now accepting applications for its 2017 Artist in Residency (AIR) Programmes. Residencies are offered in Australia, Brazil, Spain and the United States. The Africa Centre is seeking high calibre African artists, in different stages of their development (from emerging to late career), who are provocative, innovative and stretching the boundaries of their artistic practice. The residencies are available to composers, writers, video/filmmakers, curators, visual and performance artists whose work is inspired by or related to the challenges facing humanity.

The AIR partners will select an artist from a short list provided by the Africa Centre for one of their 2018 residencies. Each residency offers a distinct structure, set of requirements and duration. The costs of the residency and round-trip airfare are included in each residency award made. Emerging and mid-career artists interested in residency opportunities at Bundanon Trust in Australia, Instituto Sacatar in Brazil, Jiwar in Spain, Fountainhead Residency in Miami or International Studio and Curatorial Program in New York, can read the application guidelines at www.africacentre.net/air-2017-application-guidelines/

The deadline for applications is 16 December 2017.
