Artnoise Open residency invites artists to travel the world

By Artnoise

Artnoise open residency is a program designed for visual creatives in the digital space who are open to exploring Afro inspired arts and audiences. This program gives participants the opportunity to travel to Ghana, London, Morocco, Togo, Capetown, or Canada from 2021 – 2023, create new art, explore and exhibit their works.      

It is a great opportunity for creative people who want to take steps in their career and artistic development which include painters, applique artists, digital illustrators and painters, video game artists, YouTube content creators, and other arts professionals.

Participants will have the space to create, research, experiment, cultivate new directions in their work and execute new projects.

In addition to a shared studio space and living facilities, artists will immerse themselves in the local creative community, art exhibitions and festivals, visit galleries and have the chance to learn from their peers in the hosting city.

This is not Artnoise’s first foray with artists, in 2018 the platform took artists to Kenya and Tunisia, in 2019 to Canada, and in 2020, it hosted free online programs for hundreds of creatives to develop their arts online during the pandemic.

It has also supported visual projects of independent creatives like OSHUN.  

“Participants in the 2021 – 2023 program include EMMY nominated digital artist Donavon Brutus, and many more.” Participants of the program can request funding and support for their projects as needed.


Artnoise is a platform that promotes the creation of Afro-inspired arts by Independent Artists. It celebrates Africa’s multiculturalism and diversity, old and contemporary arts, culture, and style from all across the continent. To learn more and participate in the program, simply apply here –
