Artnoise returns with 2019’s OpenCall for African Creatives

Artnoiseng, a platform dedicated to supporting African creativity and art started its mission last year with a program that inspired and enabled creative youth to travel to Kenya, Tunisia and Ghana, using the period of 3 months to create new art and meet other people on the continent.
For 2019, Artnoise is back with 4 curated programs that enage both performing and visual creatives, travelers and younger creative people from all socio economic backgrounds.

In January, Artnoise is opening applications for its Artist Residency in Karen Village which is a huge artists community in Kenya, home to CNN’s heavily documented Ocean Sole. The program will provide time and space for visual artists, curators, and arts professionals 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 surrounded by a community of artistic peers and have the opportunity to learn from their peers in a tranquil cultural environment.

Applications for its funded Music Residency has been designed to meet the needs of emerging or independent individuals or groups who create sounds influenced by afromusic or cultures or hiphop music or culture ready to take the next step in their careers and artistic development also open in January to be closed March 2019 and commence July of 2019.

Artnoise also launched a Mentorship-workshop program for creative youth below 18 set in Lagos to receive short training and equipment to help in their training.
