Call for researcher - Mobility & touring in East African visual arts field
Art Moves Africa (AMA) is an international not for profit organization aiming at facilitating cultural and artistic exchanges within the African continent.
AMA offers travel grants to artists and cultural practitioners living and working in Africa to travel within the African continent in order to engage in the exchange of information, the enhancement of skills, the development of informal networks and the pursuit of cooperation.
With the support of regular evaluations and statistics of applications received and of grants allocated to African cultural practitioners, AMA succeeds in developing its interventions as grant making organization and to identify needs within the African artistic mobility sector.
Following this perspective, in 2011 AMA commissioned a research study called “Mobility & Touring in East Africa” with the objective to identify the main actors of the performing arts field in East Africa and analyse the relevance and frequency of artistic mobility from that geographical area towards the whole African continent.
After the success of its first research experience on mobility & touring in East African performing arts field, AMA is planning to recruit a researcher in order to launch a new study on the visual arts sector in the same geographical area. The researcher will be working and travelling in east African countries.
• Identification and mapping of available infrastructure and human resources in the visual arts field;
• Identification and analysis of opportunities and the major obstacles to mobility in East Africa;
• Proposal of feasible and practical solutions for the implementation of mobility.
