Call for applications
In 2010, the Artellewa Art Space in Cairo offers a 2 to 3 months residency for 4 visual artists from the Arab region, North Africa, and Turkey. The program is sponsored by Arts Collaboratory www.artscollaboratory.org (Netherlands).
The residency will take place at one of the most populated areas in Cairo called "Ard El-Lewa" where the Art Space is located. In order to realise their pieces, artists will be invited to inspire themselves from their interaction with people in the neighbourhood such as workers and artisans.
The residency will cover the following expenses: lodging in a private studio, living space, and a monthly stipend that covers meals and local transportation. Artellewa will also cover the costs of artists working materials. An exhibition will be organised for each artist at the Artellewa Gallery at the end of the residency.
Deadline: 31 January 2010
