27 Jul 2016
Deadline: 30 September 2016
The Africa Centre is once again offering an artist-in-resident position at the Rockefeller Foundation’s Bellagio Center in Italy for “seasoned, mid-late career artists”. PEN SA member Lauren Beukes was previously selected for this residency.
The Rockefeller Foundation’s Bellagio Residency Program awards highly accomplished academics, practitioners and artists four weeks of residence at the Bellagio Center on Lake Como, Italy. Residents and their spouses receive free room and board as well as a space to work. They spend most of their time at Bellagio working on their own projects but also have an unparalleled opportunity to interact with fellow residents from a stimulating array of disciplines and geographies. The combination of uninterrupted, individual time during the day and evenings spent with innovative leaders, policy makers, scientists, writers, and artists from a wide array of fields advances fellows’ current projects and stimulates creative approaches to future work.
