Waaw is inviting an artist working in drawing or illustration for a 4-week stay between 2 and 28 February. (Unfortunately, there is no flexibility as to the arrival date.) In our selection, we favour proposals with relevance to the Senegalese context – and if you are prepared to contribute to projects of a social or educational nature – we are definitely interested in you. Due to the short notice, we will offer this residency at the reduced price of €450 or 300,000 francs cfa.
Waaw provides individual or shared work space and some project assistance and mentoring, including assistance in establishing contacts locally. There is free wifi, but the connection is often rather poor. Accommodation is provided at a B&B run by a Senegalese family in a building at walking distance.
To get an idea about Waaw and the exciting environment of Saint-Louis, Senegal, check our Res Artis residency page, our website and ‘waawsenegal’ on Facebook.
