The Africa Centre is an international arts and culture centre based in Cape Town, South Africa.
Together with artist in residency programmes in Australia, Brazil, Ethiopia, Finland, Netherlands, Turkey and the USA, the Africa Centre has launch a new Artist in Residency Programme (AIR). The programme has been conceived to support artists from Africa 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, created from a Continental search, for one of their 2011 or 2012 residencies.
The costs of the residency and roundtrip airfare are included in each residency award made as part of this programme.
Each of the eight residencies on offer have different durations, structures and requirements.
In partnership with residencies around the world, 8 residencies are offered in 2011.
