The Artists in Residency (AIR) programme supports artists from Africa across a number of disciplines (creative writing ,performing arts, visual arts, curatorial practice, music etc ) 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 following an continental search. The costs of the residency and roundtrip airfare are included in each residency award made as part of this programme.
The residencies are available to all types of artists, each offering a unique structure and its own requirements.
With regards to future residency opportunities, please note a new call for applications will be available in early March 2014. Keep posted to the website for more details.
