Horizons for African creativity in 2018
The emergence of a new year signifies a
time for looking both backwards and forward. Reflecting on what has past and
looking ahead to what can be.
In that stroke, let’s look into 2018 for 3
opportunities for African creatives to broaden their horizons.
1. Art Noise Travel Residency
Art Noise is introducing a
residency travel program to recruit independent visual creatives & cultural
students of African or Black descent and those of non-African descent as well
who have interest in African arts and culture to engage in a three month travel
program in over 3 different African countries for 2018.
The Program is
designed for independent visual creatives, designers, and cultural studies
students across the world and aims at benefiting students by providing them
with valuable educational and work experience in contemporary and ancient
African arts and culture and by assisting them in accomplishing their goals.
There are opportunities to work with various creative sectors and demographics
of people in our selected countries.
Since Art X Lagos debuted
in 2016 it has become the biggest fair in west Africa, with mix of art sales,
contests, musical events, live performances and a program of speakers. Art X
Lagos features emerging independent artists alongside internationally
recognized names like multi-dimensional contemporary artists British Nigerian
Yinka Shonibare and South African photographer Zanele Muholi and like many art
fairs around the world, Art X Lagos opens new opportunities for many new and
seasons artists across Africa.
