January Residency

Due to cancellations, we have space available in our residency Jan 13 - February 10.

Situated in Morocco at the edge of Erg Chebbi, one of the largest sand dunes in the Sahara, Café Tissardmine is a unique guesthouse and artist retreat providing a creative oasis for artists and travellers amongst the desert’s beauty, grandeur and stillness and the culture of the indigenous Berber people.

Tissardmine is a secluded, tranquil destination for anyone seeking an escape from the noise of the world. It has been created by Australian artist, Karen Hadfield, and local Berber Youssef Bouchedor. With the realisation of the desert’s potential for creative inspiration and tranquility, Karen and Youssef bought an old ruined building in Tissardmine, and slowly breathed new life into it. Karen’s artistic expertise is accompanied by Youssef’s incredible knowledge of the desert.

You can find plenty of large hotels in the desert with air-conditioning and swimming pools but if that is not your cup of tea then Tissardmine may be for you.

Artists from all disciplines may apply.

Send your CV, samples of work (or link to website) and a short statement of what you hope to achieve here and your expectations from your time with us.
