For the last seven years, AIR has successfully awarded 69 African artists, among them Mona Eltahawy, Victor Ehikhamenor, Njabulo Ndebele & Aida Muluneh, with residency opportunities around the world.

All residencies are available to innovative, provocative and socially conscious visual and performance artists, composers, fiction and nonfiction writers, playwrights, poets, video/filmmakers, curators, as well as artists working in digital art forms.

Each residency award has a distinct structure, set of requirements and duration. The costs of the residency and round-trip airfare are included in each residency award made.

How to Apply

On offer this year are artist residencies at Bundanon Trust in Australia, Instituto Sacatar in Brazil, Fountainhead Residency & International Studio & Curatorial Program in the USA. Residencies at these spaces are available to early and mid-career African artists who predominantly live and work on the continent.
