AKKA Project is pleased to introduce the “Venice Artist Residency”
AKKA Project | Venice Artist Residency welcomes self-taught creatives from Africa, both established and emerging, who wish to broaden their cultural and artistic horizons.
The artistic residency is one of the means through which AKKA’s mission supports self-taught artists in taking their shape. The residency, annual and lasts for a maximum of three months, allows artists to explore and challenge their creative processes in an international context. The participant will live an enriching experience within the city of Venice and the Italian territory. This experience will create new points of encounter and interaction with the local and international cultural heritage and artistic scene. In fact, AKKA Project organizes a diversified educational program built according to the ambitions, interests and techniques of the hosted resident. In addition to the visits to artistic sites of Venice and Italy, the artist will be invited to participate in talks, workshops with local artists, and other activities.
At the end of the residency, the artist will give back to the community a body of work, which will summarize the research and exchange that took place during “AKKA Project | Venice Artist Residency”.
