Title picture

The Res Artis delegation of advisory committee members participated in the entire program of the Dak’Art and held a meeting on artists' mobility and residency programs. This is the first step of the Res Artis efforts to implement long lasting contacts with Africa and increase memberships from this region of the world.

Res Artis representatives had the opportunity to meet artists, managers and cultural workers from throughout the African continent. Led by Advisory Committee member N'Gone Fall, this meeting made African artists and others more aware of the opportunities available through Res Artis member artist residency centres and programmes. Eleven fully funded residencies were awarded to biennial artists by the Res Artis members in attendance.

Additionally, Res Artis hosted a panel discussion at the biennial to further discuss and promote international artist exchange through residencies.
