New Artists in Residence Programme

New, emerging and established artists are invited to submit proposals for the University of Johannesburg’s new Artists in Residence Programme.

The University of Johannesburg’s new residency programme aims to advance arts-practice as research and is open for applications from artists across the globe, but preferably with a connection to Africa. Artists working in one or a combination of Visual Arts and Fine Arts, Music, Theatre, Performance and Dance, Design, Film and Television, and Literary Arts are eligible to apply for physical and/or remote residencies at the institution.

Applications need to be accompanied by a letter of endorsement from a host department or division at the University of Johannesburg. The letter of support should include an overview of the role the department or division will play in the collaboration and should reflect on the enabling environment it will offer. The Artists in Residence Programme is open to once-off and/or multi-year projects set for completion by no later than the end of 2024.

Artists in residence will be remunerated and in addition to developing a substantial creative project, will be required to prepare creative output submissions for projects as outlined by the Department of Higher Education in cooperation with their host department or division at the University. Depending on the nature of residencies, additional administrative and other resources such as office, studio and/or rehearsal space may be made available to projects.

The closing date for applications for the UJ Artists in Residence Programme is 18 March 2022 with residencies commencing from 1 May 2022.
