ArtKaroo Stay

044 279 1093

Over the past 9 years, ArtKaroo has become a place for artists where they could reflect, be inspired and find a creative refuge from the commercially controlled society.

Drawing inspiration from the whimsical semi-desert environment, and the stories that the mountains tell, ArtKaroo taps into the bigger creative energy.

ArtKaroo Stay is the perfect residency program to enable artists to soak in the musings the Klein Karoo has to offer, in a creatively stimulating environment.

ArtKaroo Stay will provide a residency program for artists on a 3 or 6 week period.

Workshops, studiospace, accomodation and an outreach program form part of ArtKaroo Stay. Artists will stay in a creative environment, have the opportunity to liase with other local artists, an abundance of artbooks to draw research and inspiration from and the oppurtinuty to exhibit at ArtKaroo as part of a group show, or a performance art piece.
