Submissions invited for a community arts project
The Nka Foundation invites submissions of creative projects throughout the year that in some way involve the communities we are a part. Our Community Arts Project Residency is a part of our ongoing projects of tapping local resources for sustainable human capital development through a focus on the arts. Thus, we have an open door to the multiplicity of expressions in the arts from around the world. Artistic persons or teams in diverse fields of the arts (visual, theatre, music, literary, film/new media, arts education, arts therapy, philosophy, cultural history, etc), and intersections of the arts with architecture/engineering are all welcome to apply for residency. Length of project residencies varies from a few weeks to several months, according to project.
