Pro Helvetia Johannesburg has for some time been investing in transnational collaborations, exchanges and joint projects among organisations and creative practitioners operating across the Southern African region, with support from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). Our investments are focused on projects, networks and platforms that have a shared interest in building a stronger regional creative fabric.

Research residencies are available to artists, curators, and arts managers from the Southern African region to undertake research trips of between 1 and 4 weeks’ duration within the SADC region. The purpose of the funding is to provide an opportunity for creative producers and organisers to develop collaborative projects and initiatives with peers operating in the region and enjoy the benefits of face to face engagement and a substantive experience of a different context/environment for creative work.

 The same broad guidelines and exclusions for Ant project funding apply to research residency grants, and the geographical scope is the same (Angola, Botswana, Democratic Republic of Congo, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Seychelles, Tanzania (including Zanzibar), Zambia, and Zimbabwe).

The Call for ANT Research Residencies for 2017 is closed. Watch this space for future Calls for Proposals for 2018.
