Since 2016, ROOM Gallery & Projects initiated the Artist/s in Residency (Air) Programme

#ROOMATELLISHOUSE, which is focused on encouraging research, production and the presentation of creative work.

 

The Residency is open to artists from all parts of the Globe.

 

 

FOCUS OF RESIDENCY

 

#ROOMATELLISHOUSE is centred on providing artists  - from all creative fields with a  platform to research, produce work and grow their respective networks in the context of Johannesburg. We encourage artists whose practice cuts across disciplines to apply. Collaborations between local and foreign creative practitioners is also highly encouraged.

 

During and/or at the end of the Residency period we anticipate participating Artist/s to present their work through a series of public talks, peer engagements, and in the form of a showing for a period of

1 month, however the latter is not a requirement.

 

Applications are welcome throughout the year.
