Artist in Residence

Ecoart Uganda Artist Residency centre invite artists, academics, curators, and all manner of creative people for a time and space away from their usual environment. We provide a time of reflection, research, presentation and/or production. We also allow individuals to explore his/her practice in the framework of our Ugandan community; meeting new people, using new materials, experiencing life in a new location. This artist residence emphasises the importance of meaningful and multi-layered cultural exchange and immersion into another culture. 

Ecoart Uganda programs are incorporated into larger institutions like Kyambogo University, Art and Design department, Kyambogo University and closely linked to Uganda museum, universities, galleries, studio spaces, theaters, artist-run spaces, and even festivals.

The relationship between the resident and the host is an important aspect of this residency program since you will be staying with the artist Ruganzu and his family. There is opportunity to get involved in our community - giving presentations, workshops, or collaborate with local residents.Or if you require a quite secluded, with ample time to focus on and investigate your own practice. 
Artist in residence must must finance their own stay, finding funding and support from their own countries and networks.

The application process is based on an open call for application all year long.
