Africa Centre is now accepting applications for its 2017 Artist In Residency (AIR) Programmes. We are offering residencies in Australia, Brazil, Spain, Italy and the United States. We are 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 as well as other forms, whose work is inspired by or relates 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. This year there are two distinct application processes:
Mid – Late Career Artists – interested in the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center residency in Italy, can read the application guidelines here. Bellagio Center applications close on December 15th, 2017.
Emerging – 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 & Curatorial Program in New York, can read the application guidelines here. The deadline for applications in this category is December 16th, 2017.
Regular updates will be shared via the AIR Facebook and Twitter pages. For any further queries email: firstname.lastname@example.org
All the best!
