Name of Residency: ANGOLA AIR

The ANGOLA AIR (Artist In Residence) programme provides artists an environment to create, converse, inspire and be inspired outside of daily routines and traditional confines of their home life. From the moment artists arrive they´re immersed in Luanda, and the color and depth of the local community.

In addition to creating work while at the residency, artists attend openings and talks, visit artist spaces and galleries, and receive vital feedback from art professionals through one-on-one studio visits and public open houses. Artists work communally at ´ELA - Espaço Luanda Arte´.

This space is located in the heart of Luanda´s downtown with most museums, galleries, private collections, alternative spaces and performing arts venues all within less than 7 miles.
