We’re excited that you have decided to apply to our residency call for the year 2020

Nafasi Art Space is set in extensive open grounds hosting 37 indoor and outdoor studios. We regularly programme exhibitions, training sessions, workshops, talks and wider public engagement events for all those interested in art and culture.

 The AIR program is part of our objective to create a critical creative and learning environment to stimulate the discovery and creation of contemporary art in Tanzania, through production and an open and active art exchange within the region and beyond.

For the coming year, with kind support of Pro Helvetia Johannesburg and Hivos Voice we are excited to offer the chance for 6 artists to join us for 4-6 weeks on a funded basis.

We also accept additional artists, locally or internationally, on a self funded basis.
