Websites on Artists Residences.

It goes without saying that residencies constitute an important aspect of the professional development of many artists living in Africa. All the more so as in some countries there exists little or no formal art education at tertiary level. I will try and add some to the blog as I come across them.


Trans Artists is an independent foundation that informs artists of any discipline about international artist-in-residence programs and other opportunities for artists to stay and work elsewhere 'for art's sake'.

The information of Trans Artists is also intended for organizations that are involved in offering international residency opportunities or are interested to become involved: residential art centres, providers of guest studios, art initiatives, cultural institutions and governmental organisations.

Res Artis i
s the largest existing network of artist residency programmes, representing the interests of more than 200 centers and organisations in 40 countries worldwide that offer to international artists facilities and conditions conducive for making art.

More on the way soon.
