Each year, the Africa Centre, provides artists with the unique opportunity to spend four to six weeks fully dedicated to developing their craft. This year through partnerships with residency programmes in Australia, Brazil, India, Italy, Kenya, Spain, Tanzania and the United States.
AIR is seeking applications from high caliber African artists who are provocative, innovative, socially engaged and stretching the boundaries of their artistic practice.
The AIR partners select an artist from a short list provided by the Africa Centre, for one of their 2015 or 2016 residencies. The costs of the residency and round-trip airfare are included in each residency award made.The residencies are available to artists in different stages of their career development (from emerging to late career) across all disciplines: visual arts, performing arts; creative & literary arts; film; music & curatorial practice. Each residency offers a distinct structure, set of requirements and duration.
