The Africa Centre has formed partnerships with artist in residency programmes in Australia, Brazil, India, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, South Africa and the United States to provide eight residencies for our Artists in Residency (AIR) 2014 Programme.
AIR is seeking applications from African artists who are both socially engaged and stretching the boundaries of their creative domain. The AIR partners select an artist from a short list provided by the Africa Centre, for one of their 2014 or 2015 residencies. The costs of the residency and round-trip airfare are included in each residency award made. The residencies are available to all types of artists, but each residency has different durations, structures and requirements. Deadline for application submissions is the 20th June 2014.
