UJ Artists in Residence

The UJ Artists in Residence Programme is designed to perpetuate research through artistic practice, and residencies are available in Visual and Fine Arts, Music, Theatre, Performance and Dance, Design, Film and Television, and Literary Arts.

New, emerging, and established artists from around the world can apply for the programme, but it would be advantageous for an artist to have a connection to Africa. There are physical and remote residencies available in the Artists in Residence programme, depending on the nature of the research the artist will conduct and their weight in the industry that they practice in.

In the duration of the residency, the artists will be given monthly stipends over a 12-month period but does not provide project or seed funding.
