FATC hosts a variety of residency programs that provide immersive experiences for artists to connect, collaborate, and explore new practices. Located at our Ebhudlweni Arts Centre, we offer a tranquil rural setting connected to community.
We have facilitated residencies in two primary formats. The Artist In Residence Programme typically spans an average of five weeks and is open to supported artists, providing them with the necessary space to advance their artistic practice.
Additionally, we offer The Artist in Community (AIC) programme, which promotes collaboration between artists and communities. In this program, artists participate in shared projects with communities, using art as a tool to address pressing social issues. Simultaneously, communities have the opportunity to develop art skills through their involvement in the creative process. These programs serve as a platform for artists to refine their craft while actively engaging communities in creative explorations of significant social issues.
