Artist in Residence ProgrammePro Helvetia Cape Town has been running an Artist in Residence Programme in both directions, since 1999. The objective of the residency is to stimulate creative exchange between artists from Switzerland and Southern Africa and between artists in the different countries of Southern Africa. The artists are encouraged to develop their practices in a climate of cultural diversity.
Hurry up as a deadline is coming on the 1st of March 2007.
Established in 1992, the Thami Mnyele Foundation runs a unique three month artists-in-residence program in Amsterdam. The main objective of the Foundation is to advance cultural exchange between artists from Africa, the Netherlands and Amsterdam in particular. To this aim, the Foundation engages African artists of all disciplines of contemporary visual art (painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, video, film, audio and multi media) to work for three months in the Thami Mnyele Foundation studio, located in an old school building in the centre of Amsterdam. The Thami Mnyele Foundation artists-in-residence-program is therefore an ideal opportunity for concentration on work, reflection, research and discussion.
