OPEN CALL- International artist residency


Call – We are accepting applications for 2024

The EAF artist residency program is a self-directed artist residency for international artists to spend time in the historical Jinja city, Uganda, East Africa. The residency provides a stimulating and flexible environment for international contemporary artists to experiment, research, continue with an existing project or develop new works, and extend their working experience. EAF is a place for artists to step out from their usual working context, meet other international artists, and engage with the communities and artistic spaces in jinja.


We encourage artists of all backgrounds and disciplines who find interest in researching and developing work in Africa. Including but not limited to dancers, choreographers, performance and visual artists. Artists who work with workshops as a performative approach are welcome to apply. Choreographers who need dancers to work with are also welcome to work with our dancers. Both Independent artists and groups of artists are all encouraged to apply.

During the residency, artists can develop their projects on their own working terms. The 2024 artist residency program accepts applications from groups and independent artists. There is a possibility to apply for more than one month. Selected artists-in-residency receive accommodation, a shared community studio space, and assistance during their stay. We encourage all accepted applicants to apply for external funding for the residency fee and other expenses. We will provide accepted applicants with letters of acceptance and fundraising material if needed.  Artists should keep in consideration that our Residency is in a rural/suburban community making it essential to have an open mindset for different cultures
