Africa Centre’s Artist in Residency Programme (AIR), through its continued partnerships with residency programmes in Australia, Brazil, India, Spain, China and the United States, is proud to offer eight new residency opportunities through the 2016 edition of this programme.
Last year, it added another layer to the residency programme by launching a separate competition for seasoned, mid-late career artists, allowing them to apply for artist-in-residence positions at the Rockefeller Foundation’s Bellagio Center in Italy. We are delighted to announce the second installation of this competition that will award an additional five residencies for Africa’s more experienced artists.
AIR is seeking applications from high calibre African artists, in different stages of their career development (from emerging to late career), who are provocative, innovative, and are stretching the boundaries of their artistic practice.
The residencies are available to composers, fiction and non-fiction writers, playwrights, poets, video/filmmakers, curators, visual and performance artists as well as artists of other form whose work are inspired by or relate to global or social issues and promotes the well-being of humankind.
