We are preparing an exciting program that will allow artists to explore the unique culture, environment and story of Tetouan, Morocco to fuel and inform creative production. The residency's theme, UPROOTED, calls global creatives to dig deep and explore, through their art, the common story of migration and displacement in the human narrative. Each artist must submit a unique proposal of the work they hope to accomplish during the residency, centered around the theme of UPROOTED, in any of its many possible iterations and expressions.
The total cost of this package residency is 44,000 Moroccan Dirhams. Please be aware that should you receive notification of acceptance to the residency, a 10,000 DH (around $1100 USD) deposit is required to secure your place. This deposit is due no later than 30 days after acceptance, after which, if it is not paid, your place may be given to someone on the waiting list. The balance payment of 34,000 DH for the residency will be due by March 20, 2019.
