Triangle Network > Art Connection Africa: Bag Factory Artist Residency (South Africa)

Triangle Network are launching the second iteration of Art Connection Africa, a collaboration with KfW Stiftung to foster visual art exchanges, capacity building and informal learning activities within Sub-Saharan Africa. The aim of the programme is to stimulate exchanges within the Southern Africa region where a number of the Triangle Network partners are located and have contributed to the development of a local art scene. The residency will offer the selected candidate an opportunity for professional development, research and production of new work in a dynamic context that promotes dialogue, experimentation and innovation in the visual arts.

This opportunity will enable an emerging artist based in Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe, under the age of 45, to undertake a fully funded residency at the Bag Factory in Johannesburg from 1 February to 30 April 2020.
