Hot opportunity for writers and visual artists

Be among ten talented pan-Africanist writers and visual artists who will help mark 20 years of the African Union.

Under the theme “Our Africa, Our Future,” two residency programmes powered by Africa No Filter will offer the space, time, resources, and support needed to produce a broad spectrum of fiction, narrative non-fiction, and poetry, as well as paintings, sculptures, drawings, photography, digital art, video and graffiti.

Residencies will take place in November 2022 and are open to African citizens from all member states of the African Union.

Visual artists will be hosted at the Loman Art Gallery in Dakar, Senegal, while the writers will be hosted at the Library of Africa and The African Diaspora (LOATAD) in Accra, Ghana. 

Apply for the residency programmes: 

·        Writers Residency Programme (Accra, Ghana) 

·        Visual Artist Residency Programme (Dakar, Senegal) 

Deadline: 30 September 2022. Only applications sent through the above platforms will be considered. 

The project is a partnership between the African Union (AU) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
