Applications are open for the Artnoise Open Residency. The residency gives its participants the opportunity to travel to Ghana, London, Morocco, Togo, Cape Town, or Canada from 2021 – 2023.
Artnoise Open Residency is a programme designed for visual creatives who work in various mediums including the digital space interested in exploring Afro arts and audiences. It is designed for creative people who want to take steps in their career and artistic development which include painters, applique artists, digital illustrators and painters, video game artists, Youtube content creators, and other arts professionals.
Participants will have the space to create, research, experiment, cultivate new directions in their work, as well as execute new projects.
In addition to a shared studio space and living facilities, artists are invited to immerse themselves in the local creative community, art exhibitions and festivals, visit galleries, and have the opportunity to learn from their peers in the hosting city.
This opportunity will provide artists with support to develop their art, explore new art, gain new experiences, exhibit, and meet new audiences.
In 2018 the residency took artists to Kenya and Tunisia, in 2019 to Canada, and in 2020, it hosted free online programmes for hundreds of creatives to develop their arts online during the pandemic. It has also supported visual projects of independent creatives like OSHUN.
Participants in the 2021 – 2023 programme include EMMY-nominated digital artist Donavon Brutus, and many more. Participants of the programme can request funding and support for their projects as needed.
