The Department of Culture and Tourism Abu Dhabi has opened the registrations for its third edition of the Art Residency Programme.
The Cultural Foundation’s Art Residency program facilitates an assuring environment for budding artists to develop their ideas and hone their skillset under expert guidance. The registration call is for all Emirati and resident artists looking to creatively express.
It is a six-month program where the selected applicants are offered their own dedicated studio space and resources to materialize their visions. The environment they are creating is purely to inspire! The team at Cultural Foundation will also set up collaborative avenues where the artists can exhibit their work and further establish their artistic mantel in the community.
“The Cultural Foundation’s Art Residency programme embodies our vision to cultivate and engage the creative minds in our community, and to continually grow Abu Dhabi’s artistic and cultural ecosystem,” said Reem Fadda, Director of Cultural Foundation. “From its beginnings three decades ago, Cultural Foundation has always been a haven for cultural and intellectual exchange in the very heart of the capital. It is our hope that this new cohort of resident artists will take this opportunity to not only work on their art but to grow and learn from each other in this supportive and collaborative environment.”
You need to have a strong application to get in as only 10 artists will be selected for the program. The resident artists will start creating from next year January 25 to June 20 or from June 25 to January 20 in 2022. So if you have an unfinished project that is looking for wings to lift off, this residency program may just be the pit stop you need to lift off.
